Well I think a reasonable integer benchmark should spend some time in the string functions, and if optimised versions are used without too much fiddling then kudos to that architecture's support. The real question is how much of the test is just string functions and do they use a real world type of sample of them or is the whole test just a check on how fast say memcpy has been coded?
