From: "Robert G. Van den Heuvel" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: benchmark results on a VIA Eden-5000 (mini-ITX) system Date: Tue, 22 Oct 2002 09:47:24 -0700 Sergei, here's some NEW and provacative results for you on a type of system you probably have not seen yet. Unix Benchmark Utility v.0.3 Copyright (C) July, 1999 PhysTech, Inc. Author: Sergei Viznyuk <email@example.com> http://www.phystech.com/download/ubench.html Linux 2.4.18-14 #1 Wed Sep 4 11:57:57 EDT 2002 i686 Ubench CPU: 8036 Ubench MEM: 14343 -------------------- Ubench AVG: 11189 This benchmark was run on a VIA Eden 5000 mini-ITX motherboard w/fanless (soldered-in) CPU at 533 MHz, 256mb SDRAM PC-133, running RedHat 8.0 Psyche. The benchmark comes out roughly equivalent to an Intel P233 system or a K6-200. This is rather shocking considering that this is a modern production board being sold in Fry's and other places for about $110 with the CPU, but considering that it is smaller than 7x7 inches, contains video & LAN, and runs off a silent 90W power supply with power to spare for a standard 20gb hard disk, it's quite a deal for a network appliance. I have one in my office that is constantly up with nothing but a power cable and a network cable going into it. It runs X decently if it has to but I use it mostly for LDAP testing, Web serving, etc.
