Raspberry Pi Vs. Orange Pi Speed

I got my hands on a used Raspberry Pi and I ordered an Orange Pi at Aliexpress (which was an ordeal). With both devices up and running I decided to run a simple benchmark to see which tiny computer is faster.

Basic Specs

Orange Pi One
Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7, 1.2GHz
512MB RAM
Debian GNU/Linux 8

Raspberry Pi, Model B Rev 2.0
Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7, 900GHz
512MB RAM
Raspbian GNU/Linux 8

Both machines are running headless OS.  I suspect not having to draw the GUI may speed things up a bit. Typical installations with a desktop maybe a little slower.

Orange Pi One is roughly twice as fast as Raspberry Pi Model B. These are the outputs of

 sysbench --test=cpu --cpu-max-prime=20000 run

 

Orange Pi One

sysbench 0.4.12: multi-threaded system evaluation benchmark

Running the test with following options:
Number of threads: 1

Doing CPU performance benchmark

Threads started!
Done.

Maximum prime number checked in CPU test: 20000
Test execution summary:
total time: 611.3697s
total number of events: 10000
total time taken by event execution: 611.3603
per-request statistics:
min: 61.10ms
avg: 61.14ms
max: 68.35ms
approx. 95 percentile: 61.15ms

Threads fairness:
events (avg/stddev): 10000.0000/0.00
execution time (avg/stddev): 611.3603/0.00
