Here are some openssl speed test benchmarks for various current platforms.

Updated Test with 28495 build.

Speed test used: openssl speed aes-256-cbc
Code:

R7000 2x1Ghz:

WRT1200AC 2x1,3Ghz:
aes-256 cbc      33237.61k    34977.43k    36169.45k    36486.81k    36534.12k

R8500 2x1.4Ghz:
aes-256 cbc      34406.62k    37279.08k    38005.37k    38190.44k    38395.90k

R7500/EA8500 2x1,4Ghz:
aes-256 cbc      43079.28k    45180.91k    46444.39k    47271.81k    47295.15k

WRT3200ACM 2x1.8Ghz:
aes-256 cbc      47040.82k    49072.34k    49909.04k    50155.45k    50023.26k

R7800 2x1,7Ghz:
aes-256 cbc      53405.87k    59967.87k    61672.11k    61427.03k    61601.65k

R9000 4x1,7Ghz:
aes-256 cbc 66207.29k 70921.65k 73214.12k 73909.59k 74125.27k

Here are the results of the OpenSSL benchmark on my main Router running DD-WRT:

WRT1900ACv2 2x1,6Ghz:
aes-256 cbc 39827.73k 42482.68k 43462.36k 43560.07k 43980.28k

Indeed, the Qualcomm Krait 300 CPU's are about 25% more efficient than the 'vanilla' Cortex-A9 CPU's of the WRT1900ACv2.

What i would like to know is which of the two (WRT1900ACv2 vs R7500) is faster in terms of WAN > LAN throughput. I'm not entirely sure but if i remember correctly routing and NAT on the IPQ8064 is handled by two network acceleration engines clocked @720mhz. While the WRT1900ACv2 uses the Armada 385 the main CPU for those tasks?

By the way:

IPQ806X (krait) is also more efficient then broadcoms new 1.4Ghz (Cortex-A9)socs, see speed per core:

Hopefully I can get my hands on a dual atheros ipq806x with mu-mimo

my results on WRT1200 and WRT1900AC v2 are faster than yours and comparable with IPQ

Kong,
thank you for posting the comparison.

I have a question for you.
In your personal test builds that you generously share with the community you note that the R7500 does not support the 5ghz radios & probably will not.

However further down in the readme you mention as proof of concept that ddwrt support is coming for the V2.

Am I reading your read me file correctly that the current version is 1.x but a v2 is coming or already released that ddwrt will shortly have full support for?

Thank you.
Mike

V2 is the same hardware as the V1 but without 5G quantenna radio. I estimate one evening to add support for the V2, as it comes with the same radio for 5G. But I don't have the V2 yet and Netgear has not offered me any new units in a while.

But I don't think it will take long until dd-wrt supports a IPQ806X based model.

The wireless driver is already in a usable state and since it is atheros, openwrt support will be there too and issues usually get fixed quickly.

By the way, google onhub is also based on this platform, not sure if all of their stuff is opensource, but theiy have a speaker onboard which could be fun. LOL

Kong,
why is there a support for AC87U which has exactly the same Quantenna wireless, but not for R7500? Where is the difference?

different implementation of the quantenna chipset. the ac87 uses network connection between the main ac87 board and the quantenna board (which has a own closed source os which can't be modified by us right now)
the r7500 seem to use something else which hasnt been reverse engineered yet at all.

Does this mean the support in 28366 for the R7500v1 is only partial?

that means we ported the cpu and we made it in focus for QCA99XX chipset which is way much better and made for v2. and finally i dont have a r7500v1. only kong has one and is playing with it.
do not flash any 7500v1 image right now. its not even tested from my side. i deleted it also now from server.
the r7500v2 can be supported already, since we finished all work for qca99xx chipsets so far, but for quantenna i have to wait if kong gets it to run

Ok, cool. Thanks so much for the clarification! (and honestly now I'm not sure which R7500 I have... I'll need to check to see if it's v1 or v2!)

Indeed thanks for the info BrainSlayer. This is the first time somebody is able to give me a proper answer with the exact issue. Keep up with the good work Smile

Updated results with broadcoms new 1.4Ghz soc.

Right now IPQ build does not yet make use of full compile optimizations, I expect higher numbers once I switched to new toolchain, which offers optimizations for krait.

Now with results for R7800, over 2x faster than a R7000
