I'm am trying to find a replacement for my aging Archer C7, now that I have gigabit. It looks like my best options are, from the pinned recommendations thread, to either try using a Raspi4, or using an x86 mini PC.
While I have a Pi I might be able to experiment with, I'd prefer to try going down the x86 path, since then I can use official builds, and can also run other x86 based software on the device.
My question was, are there any specific recommendations for x86 devices that can handle gigabit throughput with OpenWRT?
I saw the pinned thread referenced the ZOTAC ZBOX Edge CI341. I was also wondering about using a PCEngines APU2 (since I know people in the forum have talked about them before), or a Seed ODYSSEY.
Since there are so many mini-pc vendors out there, there any minimum requirements I should be looking for in a mini-pc, like a minimum CPU passmark score, to determine if it can handle my target speeds?
Thank you for any help.
