ARM Hardfloat takes it up a notch in the performance category.

Great article above, it’s looking good for armhf , I’m still waiting for the armhf TI patches for gstreamer/totem (Unless they have already been released)  I don’t see them here on

TI OMAP devel trunk PPA

, im pretty sure those are only available for Oneiric still. You can also get them integrated if you just build using linaro tools , assuming you have the correct hwpack and binary.

With the cpufreq support enabled, the dual-core Cortex-A9 can now run as low as 300MHz or ramp up to its highest 1.2GHz frequency stepping when needed. Without the cpufreq support, the SoC is just stuck running at around 1.0GHz. With this support finally enabled for Ubuntu Linux, there is some immediate performance boosts for the PandaBoard ES.
