It has 8 antennas and is a beast of a router that sells for 439 euros on amazon.de. At that price it really ought to be fast. Back in more reasonably-priced territory, I did some real-world tests 18 months ago on my ASUS RT-AC56U (97 euros on amazon.de, ARM x 2) and never exceeded 25 Mb/s with 80% cpu load. Even had it achieved 100% cpu, that would still only equate to 30 Mb/s. Flippant comments about magic aside, if you throw big mony at the hardware, you'll get more speed. I'm still betting that a small i3 with AES-NI would outperform it on openvpn, and for a fraction of the price. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
