Right cpu for the job



  • Hi witch cpu would be right for the job a duo core or quad core for pfsense using vpn, snort and antivirus if im not mistaken vpn is better with more but im not to sure.



  • Intel E8400 or E8500 it is good till 200 Mbps OVPN and will take ~65 W.



  • Any recommendations on newer chips like the 1150/1151.2011 as theirs not much for used pc being sold were i am and buying that chip new is the price of  a 1151.

    You're right, OpenVPN it's not scalable so is better to have a multi-core CPU.
