He compared 1.2GHz ARM and 1.2GHz P3.
P3 was much faster then [original] Pentium (which was adopted for Atom design) - this means that if your Xoom has reached parity with Atom (and indeed this is about where Cortex-A9 is) then it's still significantly slower then P3 (and P3 itself is significantly slower then contemporary AMD/Intel CPUs at the same frequency: it's quite old design, after all).
Cortex-A15 should be much closer to contemporary AMD/Intel CPUs but it's not yet readily available thus it's speed are mostly speculations at this point.
