And you're well above that!
    The upgrade wouldn't be for speed. It'd be to get a newer generation of equipment that's hopefully lower power. 4th gen isn't old but you never know, something more efficient might be out there. The i3 handles it with aplomb.

    You are right, but I don't think 4th gen to 8th gen would really give you enough return... not in the time we're all waiting for Meltdown / Specter immune chips anyway. And perhaps somewhere between here and there the RAM prices will get normal again.

    I've got a ways to go, my hardware trickles down just to get the old out and the new in. With kids moving around my closet will get crowded. Any way to keep it cooler is always a good thing.

    And now almost like Magic the u25X is out... a funny coincidence

    And that's a device I'm well aware of and tested myself, it most certainly doesn't have gigabit capabilities either. It will however handle about 600mbit. Huge step in the right direction for speed, but not so much for reliability and support which is why I'm not selling them. Untangle must feel confident enough in them to offer them. I wish them luck, the returns are brutal.

    I thought Lanner provided the u25 chassis, but not sure who provides the u25x.

    Dirk is claiming in another thread it will do gigabit... though of course that depends on what apps you're running and what you're logging.

    We have different definitions of what gigabit means. I can tell you from first hand testing with scientific Linux that unit cannot hit 1gbit throughput, it cannot hit 80% of gbit through put. It can however, easily do 2 to 3 times what the old Atom based devices can do, and can sustain ~600mbit. Which in the router marketing space means "gigabit" these days.

    I won't say gigabit unless the device can sustain greater than 900mbit.

    But reasonably speaking you can say gigabit here, it's not a falsehood. But to get true gigabit you need an i3. And with the way Untangle has been going in terms of efficiency, I don't think it's unreasonable to expect them to perform better in the future than they do now. With the possible exception of the negative impacts from the Meltdown and Specter patches, Untangle's system requirements have been falling substantially every release.

    So once again, huge step in the correct direction. My only concern is the random quality from that manufacturer. It's also the only real option to reach this price point available. So I want to be clear, they do not meet my personal standards of quality so I won't sell them at this time. They are however NOT bad units, they are quite good, and they address a valid market need. Who knows, perhaps in time I'll change my mind on the quality issues. I'm VERY conservative on such things.

    So I'm very interested to see how this all shakes out. These xSeries devices are a much better solution to the ARM based options Untangle has also been exploring at this time. A path forward to lower cost devices will open here somewhere. And we're all trying to find it!

    Just to bring this full circle i just upgraded to a u25x and it can push a GB sustained with only a handful of apps running. i am consistently seeing over a 300 GB/s improvement with the same configuration vs the u25

    See my first post in thread for conditions but

    u25  365 Mb/s average
    u25x 679 Mb/s average

    Same apps
    Same bypass rule in QoS for the testing PC
    PC QoS set to Very High which is set to 60% Upload/Download Reservation

    Where/how do you set the QOS for a device?
