Part of the Furniture
This one is interesting for those that want to dabble in alternate router platforms.

There's a writeup/review on the box over on Serve The Home

This is a very capable box that is certainly feature rich...
Here's the business end...

You get 8 1Gbe ports, 4 off the CPU, and 4 off the i350 ethernet chipset - one also gets a console port, and what's really useful, out of band management via the IOM port (it has a Aspeed BMC onboard)

Internally, it's got 2 M2 slots, along with 2 mPCI slots - it's a beast...

Hokay - I did do the whole E-Bay thing to order the box...

For $250USD - it is loaded - 16GB DDR4-3200, 8GB-EMMC, 64GB-NVME, the BMC-ILO module, along with the 4G-LTE module and a dual-band/single radio WiFi card...

While it's not as sexy as some of the QOTOM boxes - this is a denverton 8-core/8-thread SoC with Intel QAT implemented...

It's the diff between an Apps processor vs a Comms SoC - good at certain tasks..
