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 <>
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.
