I have a D510-based dual Intel NIC board that consumes around 19W idle
with a PicoPSU and will route around 350 Mbps using the default packet
size in iperf, or 600+ Mbps with net.inet.ip.fastforwarding enabled.
I have also done a system based on an Intel DH57JG board + i3 560,
2.5" hdd and PicoPSU that used 17-19W idle and would route wire speed
(950 Mbps steady, using a vlan switch) on iperf with ~60% idle CPU in
Lastly, I have an Intel DQ67EP board with i5 2500, SSD, and DC-DC PSU
(Antec) that uses ~19W idle. I haven't run pfsense on this one or
tested its routing capacity.
I hope the extra data points will be useful to you.
