Please list any experience/knowledge you've had with Speex on the following hardware, including model, minimum speed required for real-time or other observations. When providing benchmarks, please specify:

  • CPU speed
  • Speex version
  • Sampling rate (narrowband vs wideband)
  • Bit-rate
  • Complexity setting
  • Any other option that isn't the default
  • Compiler (and version)

See also supported CPU and optimization flags here - http://www.speex.org/docs/manual/speex-manual/node5.html


Contents

x86

  • SSE optimisations (intrinsics)

Power

  • No Altivec support yet

ARM

  • Port with gcc inline assembly.

Performance results for Cirrus Logic EDB9315A @ 200MHz

Tests were run with following configuration:

  • Speex svn rev: 13928
  • Fixed point (though this CPU have hardware floating-point, we were interested in fixed point operation at that moment).
  • Narrow-Band
  • Complexity set either to defailt (2) or to 1, I do not recall exactly now :( But I think results will not differ considerably.
  • DTX: no
  • Preprocessing: no, just bare encoding/decoding
  • OS: Linux, shipped with development board
  • Compiler: gcc-4.1.2 with -O2
