The fact that ARM CPUs run at lower clock rates (and thereby use less power than other types of CPUs) is more or less their entire reason for existing. If your application really needed all the oomph that a 3.0GHz quad core Xeon gives you, you should have used that, and not some 200MHz ARM CPU. Or, you could have considered using a faster ARM CPU -- 1GHz+ ARM CPUs do exist.
