SG 2220 v SG 2440 Performance
Assuming that I do not need the extra ports offered by the SG 2440 compared to the SG 2220 and expect to use stock pfSense without additional packages with DHCP and perhaps a caching DNS server running on a home network with cable internet service that tops out at 100 Mbps, is there going to be a performance difference between the two boxes?
With no packages i would say no. But in other thread you mention AntiVirus and Intrusion Prevention. Depending on what packages you use these could make a big difference. Extra cores could help.

The two devices have the same CPU. The 2440 has Quick Assist but I don't think that's going to do much for pfSense.
I don't need the extra ports.
The 2440 has 4 gb of memory compared to 2 gb in the 2220.
The 2220 costs $299 and the 2440 costs $499.
Is there really enough of a performance difference to warrant that cost differential given my lack of need for the extra ports?
