Intel's Oak Trail chipset scores disappointing benchmark results
Overall, the test scores were not great news for a company trying to break into a market that already has two proven brands with Nvidia's Tegra 2 and Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors. And there is also TI's OMAP4 series to contend with. Intel has to make up a lot of ground for the Oak Trail to be a player in this market.

Why first iPad has the highest score? Is this test optimized for 2 cores?

probably.... its being an issue to measure the work of the terga for similar reasons seems there is something not cutting with the processors but only time will tell

The Sun Spider test is in mili-seconds. Meaning the Compal intel Oaktrail unit processes Java quickly vs the slow iPad at 3267ms
However, CaffeineMark 3, the lower score on the Compal intel Oaktrail proto is a complete fail.
I think this is a clear indication that Intel has a long way to go before producing a class leading Tablet CPU.
It might be the case that Intel are having issues adapting x86 core technology from top end CPU's (like the Core i7 series) where as, Qualcomm, Nvidia, Sumsung and Apple have come the long hard road in developing ULV SOC (along with TI, ARM, etc) from the ground up.
If Intel really want in this game, I reckon it would be more economical to either buy, or licence ARM technology lol

Its a prototype. Not a finished unit. Dont judge the chipset until its ready for launch. Even the current king of the crop, the Samsung Exynos scored badly on preproduction software.. and look at it now, its flying circles around the Tegra2 and others.
Bottom line is wait till its in production to pass judgement. There are still plenty of bugs they need to work out.

Bunch of retards here, Ipad is the slowest one here.
Lower score = better = faster in this benchmark

Does anyone actually read the article before they comment?

The android Kernel has been optimized since inception for ARM not x86.
