Looking for a successor to the Intel D2500CC



  • I'm currently using a Intel D2500CC in my pfsense box and i'm looking for a replacement.

    Intel released new Intel Atom's some time ago, but i couldn't find a useful mini-itx with dual-intel-nic until now.

    Any recommendations are welcome.



  • Any reason you need to upgrade? I've been looking at D2500CC to run pfSense+snort+litesquid. Is D2500CC inadequate for the job?



  • The new Avoton motherboards which include 4x Intel 1 Gbps ports would be the logical upgrade once pfSense 2.2 (FreeBSD 10) gets released.

  • D2500CC price is quite low when compared even to the cheapest Avoton motherboard

    Wow just wow, that thing has an 8 full core atom cpu each core running @ 2.4ghz !

    Surely must be the new baytrail range atoms? I think the penium 2.4ghz J2900 was a quad looks like this mobo just slapped on 2 of them.

    And 20watts max…. this thing could replace half the desktop pcs if not 100% overkill for a pfsense box ! I do like the fact it has 4 giga ports and also supporst 1.5volt ddr3 sodimms, a full size pci express 16x slot may have made this a gaming rig even.

    Also it supports AES instructions for VPN users :)
