Most firewalls and routers are in fact CPU-based; even those marketed as "hardware appliances". Our ''security router'' software is compiled for 32/64 bit Intel-compatible (i386/amd64) computers and servers , and offers a very good price/performance ratio for systems handling traffic volumes in the range of 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps. The benchmarks below are performed using two low-end computers running Linux with <tt>iperf</tt>[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iperf] or OpenBSD with <tt>tcpbench</tt>[http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man.cgi?query=tcpbench] (with standard configuration and without extra command-line options), in order for you to know what you should expect at least.
