What would be the best MikroTik router hardware for OpenVPN performance?
edit: Many users use case, not single user performance.

None at this moment. Mikrotik’s OVPN implementation sucks for RouterOS ver 6.x:

- Support only for TCP not UDP (Causing TCP meltdown)

- No compression

- No hardware acceleration for encryption/ decryption.

RouterOS v7.x that is in beta since last year promises to fix these issues. I do know it supports at least UDP now but not sure the others features.

If you want good performance now I recommend to use IKEV2 VPNs with some of the routers that supports IPSec HW acceleration such as hEX S, hAP AC2 or RB4011 just to mention few.

Good luck
