Cortex-A15 based Samsung Chromebook running somewhat more traditional Linux instead of ChromeOS. Test for X11 drivers performance in Firefox using HTML5 demo http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Per...

To sum up the results, xf86-video-armsoc is a performance disaster in its current shape. Even xf86-video-fbdev driver performs a lot better. The issue can be also workarounded (at least for browsing) by enabling client side rendering in Firefox (by setting "gfx.xrender.enabled" to "false" in about:config).
