For comparison here are the results of stream_d on an AmigaOne XE with 750FX/800 (executed on AmigaOS4, but of course the OS makes no difference for such benchmarks):
-------------------------------------------------------------
This system uses 8 bytes per DOUBLE PRECISION word.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Array 
size 2000000Offset 0
Total memory required 
45.8 MB.
Each test is run 10 timesbut only
the 
*besttime for each is used.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Your clock granularity/precision appears to be 3 microseconds.
Each test below will take on the order of 127572 microseconds.
   (= 
42524 clock ticks)
Increase the size of the arrays if this shows that
you are not getting at least 20 clock ticks per test
.
-------------------------------------------------------------
WARNING -- The above is only a rough guideline.
For 
best resultsplease be sure you know the
precision of your system timer
.

Please note that the stream benchmarks aren't optimized, with functions optimized for PPC like the newlib.library memcpy() and memset(), or the AmigaOS4 final IExec->CopyMem[Quick]() and IUtility->SetMem(), you get much faster speeds than with trivial code like in the stream benchmarks or the clib2 memcpy()/memset() functions.

It seems much more faster than A1.

 Re: Sam440EP memory tests published
Faster memspeed is important for Sam440 to compensate for the lack of L2 cache. Some dnetc benchmark results would be interesting, it'd give us a better idea of how overall performance compares to a G3/800 in some computing-intensive tasks.

Some more comparison benchmarks can be found here.

That's a G4 (7455 I believe) @ 800mhz (A1):

-------------------------------------------------------------
This system uses 8 bytes per DOUBLE PRECISION word.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Array size = 1000000, Offset = 0
Total memory required = 22.9 MB.
Each test is run 10 times, but only
the *best* time for each is used.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Your clock granularity/precision appears to be 2 microseconds.
Each test below will take on the order of 65684 microseconds.
(= 32842 clock ticks)
Increase the size of the arrays if this shows that
you are not getting at least 20 clock ticks per test.
-------------------------------------------------------------
WARNING -- The above is only a rough guideline.
For best results, please be sure you know the
precision of your system timer.

Sam440 is starting to look interesting now

I hope the sam440 will come whit faster CPU at some point?

It's using the fastest 440 CPU with FPU already, the other 440 CPUs which are available with higher clock speeds and/or have a L2 cache don't have a FPU.
