My Captivate (Samsung Galaxy S) with EXT4 filesystem, that is green I/O zone.
I/O is what bloats Quadrant. That's why yours is so much higher running a modified file-system. Stick it back to RFS (Samsung's stock filesystem) and you'll see way worse results.
That's the same reason I can top 2400 quadrant with my Samsung Epic on EXT4 with absolutely no journaling (i.e. - I drop it, battery pops out, my filesystem has a good chance of being toast) .... It's flawed and not accurate.
Moving on to Linpack, like I said, gets extremely bloated from JIT and specific architectures. Without a doubt Snapdragon processors always beat other processors, that's because it's well optimized. Owning a captivate I'm sure you'd agree that our low Linpack scores (9-14 MFLOPS) is not representative of real world performance... Taken from the ROM thread on XDA for the one I'm using.... I'm too lazy to upload my own. I know you can't read it but that's a 2400 Quadrant score, notice all the green?
