Yes, the RB1k IS a very fast packet processor for the money, but I'd be
surprised if it could keep up with that dual core.  Maybe it could.
I've been wrong before, and the Atom is one platform I've never even
seen firsthand.

Don't go to that trouble on MY account.  If it is of interest to you (or
others on the list), then by all means do so.  I'd recommend some
bandwidth tests with very small packets to see how many it can process
in routed mode.  Try the same tests with large packets.  Also,
throughput with large and small packets when NAT is active.
