Yeah. Small FF 2 port Celeron board is what I use. And I have a 4 port Atom that runs like a bat out of hell. 

Currenty fiddling with Xilinx Dev boards, just put packet processing in FPGA for Cake, and no problem with 2.5 - 10 Gb/sec. Just need a free piece of low level SFP+ interfacing logic.

My use case is using the open ChipLink/TileLink bus from RISCV rather than PCIe, making something that might be an open source ASIC design.

I bought one of these to play with:

x86 (i3 processor), four real ethernet ports, and passively cooled. A
bit pricy, though; more than $400... But doubles well as a combined
switch and media player :)
