The NG500 box with the upcoming 9.2 release (now in release candidate) will accommodate more than 300 Mbps with all security features enabled. If you intend to build your own system, consider the bare metal install for optimal performance. The NG500 uses a core i5 (quad) <_at_> 3.6 Ghz. As the 9.2 version is 64 bit, we now recommend 4 GB of RAM.

For clarification, I was referring to the NG500 (I wrote NG100 by mistake).

Thank you!
4 core i5 3.6ghz is a powerful processor. i5-6500?
I was hoping for i3-6100 or FX-8320, 4Gb RAM.

I don't know about BOX, but Control installed on a server/PC will use only one CPU core for routing. IPS another one.

For a normal operation at 300 mbit/s, even old i5 Ivy Bridge (3.2 GHz) will be enough. I think up to 500 mbit/s it can handle for sure. But not under UDP/NTP-flood with tons of packets.

i5-6500 (Skylake-S) is even better than Ivy Bridge.

i3-6100 - Skylake-S almost the same as i5-6500 but only two cores (clocks are a little higher). If you need only routing + IPS (questionable thing to me), use i3-6100. But if you need all of Control: routing, IPS, Antivirus and Web Filter, use i5-6500.

Don't use FX-8320 (and any of AMD) - 8 cores with low performance each.
