ARM Cortex M4F!! FPU supported?

Very excited to hear about this board! Will the mbed compiler use the Floating Point Unit / DSP instruction set of the ARM Cortex M4F? That would be a HUGE benefit for control algorithm development!

Hi,
The mbed compiler for this board is set to generate hardware FP/DSP instructions.
Kind Regards,
Embedded Artists Team

I am not seeing any performance difference with floating point operations between the mbed LPC1768 and the Nucleo F411RE. In both cases, floating operations take about 45 cycles.

I used the following code: http://mbed.org/users/igor_m/code/benchmark/
