    Saw this over on Reddit - posted Saturday (4/29/17)....

    (Netgate/ADI is the OEM for pfSense logo'ed boxes)

    My best guess at the moment for this box (seen below) - MinnowBoard Turbot Dual-E

    http://www.adiengineering.com/products/minnowboard-turbot-duale/
    • Dual Ethernet MinnowBoard for developers, makers, and OEMs
    • CPU Options: E3826 1.46 GHz Dual Core, E3845 1.91 GHz Quad Core
    • 2x Intel i211 Ethernet ports
    • M.2 slot for SSD, Wi-Fi, or LTE, with Micro-SIM socket
    • FCC and CE certified, OEM production quality
    • Open-source under Creative Commons BY-SA 3.0
    the E3826/E3845 chips - silvermont (22nm), no QAT, but does have Intel DPDK support, which is a win...

    (those who have SG-2220/2440 - no big deal, this one slots below those models, and above the ARM based SG-1000)

    Not sure where the pricing will be - Netgate is always a bit spendy, but very high quality boards...

    BTW - ADI/Netgate/pfSense - they've got Armada 38x up and running as well - so the pfSense ARM port is moving along nicely...

    If this box can push 1gbps at 64 byte packets, what your box SG-2440 is capable of? Adding QoS on top, what'll be the throughput on both?

    Considering the following...
    • CPU Options: E3826 1.46 GHz Dual Core, E3845 1.91 GHz Quad Core
    • 2x Intel i211 Ethernet ports
    Rangeley likely pushes more - mostly because of the i354 embedded in the chip itself... it's a pure comms chip...

    The Baytrail E-Series are an odd-duck for many - similar to J/N/Z, but their own mix of the action.. it's mostly about I/O and features...

    And for what it's worth - throughput vs. capacity - these are two different things... just depends on use-cases...

    SG-2440's are well documented for high usage/capacity - and are appropriate for 500Mbp/Sec links...
