Thanks Bryan, but ... errr - I was hoping to find out if PF ran like a dog on 
it **before** I splashed the cash to get one in!!! 

Matheus - I have got up to 480Mb/s on a Supermicro Atom based server 
(SYS-5015A-EHF-D525) with Intel NICs using standard FreeBSD igb driver in PF 

Most tests show an average of 320Mb/s. So I was a bit disappointed with that - 
but now you've told me you're not even getting 150Mbs - perhaps I'm just being 
plain greedy!?!?

I'm not cooking the CPU, this is the Atom D525 dual core atom with hyperthreads 
and yes I see 4 X CPUs in PF. So I guess this is just the infamous PFSense 
issue with Intel NIC drivers..?

Or just FreeBSD itself.....?
