Interesting questions are how much CPU limited the throughput is and how much the lower CPU utilisation of intel NICS would improve throughput in comparison to Realtek NICs. A further question is how good the drivers are in FreeBSD (pfSense), OpenBSD and Linux. Where are the differences?
Maybe you missed my earlier post where I mention that I measured 950Mbps and 95kpps on the current APU1D with 8111E running Linux. Is there anything else you want to know about the test?
If your current throughput is inadequate, your options are:
- Wait for your favourite OS to catch up.
- Fix your favourite BSD.
- Use Linux.
- Pick different hardware.
This is not the right place to be advocating for option 4, so is there a real problem you want to solve or is this all just hypothetical?
