Should jolly well hope so for £3,500!! Do Mikrotik do a 48 port switch? I can find MikroTik CRS328-24P so would need two for £750. Serious question, what extra does the Cisco Catalyst 9300 bring to the table?So yes ... they pack a lot of performance.
Although that gap is closing rapidly... Apple wouldn't drop Intel for ARM if they weren't sure their own bespoke chips could compete.x86 (I think they are possibly x64?) enough said. That's high-horsepower. You could do a bunch of things that's not possible on arm, arm64, MIPS etc
As an example I was directly involved in 2019 biggest ransom attack
Thanks - ticket raised to read and digest later.
