ARM and Atom have more-or-less the same speed today (don't forget that Z2460 is 1.6Ghz while, for example, Galaxy Nexus is 1.2GHz). And there are plenty of benchmarks which show that modern CPUs are about 50-60% faster.
Note: this is if your phone uses latest-and-greatest out-of-order Cortex-A9. If it uses slower in-order Cortex-A8 then it's slower still.
It's quite possible, though, that Cortex-A15 will finally bring rough parity in this aspect. Of course some gap will probably remain but it'll not be 5-7 difference in speed at the same frequency (as it was just a few years ago).
