Relative performance of past and present Netgate products
It would be really helpful, if for past and present products, there'd be a basic performance comparison:
- Routing throughput at various packet sizes
- Encrypted VPN throughput
- max. number of connections
With products now spanning 32-bit and 64-bit AMD and a variety of amd64 CPUs of various clock frequencies, RAM configurations and network adapters, it's hard to figure out how the products stack up against each other.
I doubt the performance is strictly proportional to the price.
The only partial performance comparison I've found is here:
But even that skips VPN encryption performance and number of supported connections.
I think an up-to-date table like that for past and present netgate hardware should be pinned to the top of this board.
I would suggest if you have questions on specific(s) between specific models or what model x can do vs y that you contact sales at netgate with your questions.
