1100 AHx2 vs. Hx2

Thu Dec 20, 2012 1:55 pm


I tried searching around and it seems the only difference between the 1100AHx2 and 1100Hx2 is the support for ipsec acceleration. Are there any other differences? For my distributor there is a 40euro price difference, so that kind of confused me.

Is the Hx2 replacing the AHx2 or will AHx2 be manufactured also for the forseeable future? IPSec accel. is quite important, and its currently lacking on any other RB in production.

The latest news sent to distributors said the following:
We are glad to introduce our new RouterBOARD 1100Hx2! It has PowerPC 1066Mhz CPU (dual core) and 1GB RAM, as well as thirteen Gigabit Ethernet ports. Hardware encryption is not supported.

Next batch of RB1100AHx2 will arrive from factory on February 2013. We suggest now to order new RB1100Hx2 instead, as we have RB1100Hx2 in stock.
So it looks like both versions will be available.

But... note that AHx2 only use 1,5GB of the 2GB installed... Then.. there is only 512 Mb of difference and hw encription.
