Hi all.

I've made a new review video about the Orange Pi 3 with Linux.

I've used Armbian Stretch for this video.

Here is my video.


Here you can find all the data I've gathered.

Great review nicoD!

 

Did you manage to install an OS to the emmc storage?

Also how is the wifi performance when connected to the 5.0GHz band?

Yes, I installed Armbian Bionic on the eMMC, and Armbian Stretch was on a SD-card.
The 5Ghz wifi has the same performance as my big dual antenna wifi adapter on my pc.
 

Wifi 5G : Down : 36.8 Mbps 4.6 MB/s
          Up   : 11.5Mbps  1.4MB/s
Debian Armbian chromium down : 26.8Mbps
Debian Armbian Firefox down  : 41.9Mbps	
	 
PC 5G   : Down : 47.8 Mbps 5.97MB/set
          Up   : 11.5Mbps  1.4MB/s

I do have a weird issue with Chromium. That's always a lot slower. When I tried Firefox I got almost the same results as my pc(it's a browser test, not netperf).
