Hi,

Does a (faster) Cog VM for the Raspberry Pi actually exist ?

I tried comparing the latest OpenSmalltalk VM with some older ones, only to 
find that they are all equally fast (slow actually):

pi@raspberrypi ~/Pharo $ ./pharo -nodisplay Pharo.image printVersion
[version] 5.0 #50581

"http://files.pharo.org/vm/pharoS/raspbian/latest.zip";

pi@raspberrypi ~/Pharo $ ./pharo -nodisplay Pharo.image eval '1 tinyBenchmarks'
'167429692 bytecodes/sec; 11160247 sends/sec'

"http://www.mirandabanda.org/files/Cog/VM/VM.r3427/cogspurlinuxhtARM-15.33.3427.tgz";

pi@raspberrypi ~/Pharo $ ./products/phcogspurlinuxhtRPi/pharo -nodisplay 
Pharo.image eval '1 tinyBenchmarks'
'166992824 bytecodes/sec; 11337746 sends/sec'

"https://bintray.com/opensmalltalk/vm/download_file?file_path=cog_linux32ARMv6_pharo.cog.spur_201610142319.tar.gz";

pi@raspberrypi ~/Pharo $ ./products/phcogspurlinuxhtRPi/pharo -nodisplay 
Pharo.image eval '1 tinyBenchmarks'
'166992824 bytecodes/sec; 11337746 sends/sec'

That is no significant difference on a RPi 3, at all. Is this normal ? Am I 
missing something ?

Thx,

Sven

PS: Just for reference, my Mac Book Pro is 10 times faster
