Re: MikroTik newsletter May 2020 (#95)

Yeah, but that's not what happens. If we assume that 35 Gbps is an IO limit (not due to the interconnect but something else, like memory bandwidth for instance as you say), the 64-byte result proves that the CPU can do 9.2 Mpps. Then why isn't it doing 8.5 Mpps to get to the same 35G at 512 bytes? ...

How about an hAP ac2?

It costs a little more than the hEX - but its routing speed (at 25 rules and 512 bits/packet) is almost two times higher.

If you want to use it as a switch, it will perform at wirespeed levels.
