Dedibox V3: first impressions and benchmark

Right after the announcement, I could get my very own Dedibox V3.

Nothing to complain of with the speed of delivery, it took me no more than 10 minutes to order the new box, be notified of its availability, and install an Ubuntu Lucid distribution (signaled as beta).

As I was very curious about the performance of the famous Nano processor, I pitted my older Dedibox (the server powering this very website) against the new one using nbench, here are the results:

First, the original dedibox:
