Anyone try this Dual Core D2550 Atom 4/5 GB RJ-45 with pfSense yet?
Looks like a fairly compatible configuration at a decent price.
I've got D2550 Atom with 2 Broadcom NICs. 4GB + 32 GB SSD. Works pretty well for my setup. Considering this has Intel NICs, may work a little better.
I've had no problems with similar D2550 machines using two broadcom NICs, though I don't stress them much.
I've got an N2800 which is practically the same cpu performance wise… I've got a peak throughput of 700+ MBps packet inspected. on a dual gig intel on a 1x pcie slot.
cpu temps stay 27 and 34c core 1 core 2 crammed in a 1u repurposed chassis. its pretty overkill for anything really at home. but only draws 15W from wall
