Hi Dave, hi list,

	well, for what it is worth the apu1c is EOL’d and replaced by the apu1d, no idea what the difference is, both use an AMD low power/performance from last generation ;)

	But the fitlet uses a slightly more modern AMD design (I think its jaguar/puma instead of bobcat, whatever that means, technologically I mean, I am on top of the biologic difference between the two ;) ) I would not bet money that this can saturate its gigabit ethernet ports, but I think the immediate goal is a reasonably low priced device that allows SQM on current bandwidths <= 300Mbps combined. Maybe this is it...

	More waiting ;) I think the dual and quad ethernet devices are not out yet …

Best Regards

The AMD Jaguar SoC is supposedly more powerfull then the AMD G series T40E in the pc-engines api-1d ( http://www.pcengines.ch/apu1d.htm ) that was not that hot network wise ( http://planet.ipfire.org/post/pc-engines-apu1c-a-review ). Improvements include twice the L2, slightly faster DRAM, slightly tweaked core, an potentially “turbo” up to 1.6Ghz from 1GHz base, intel GE chip i211 with BQL support. Downside the intel AC wifi card most likely will not allow proper tweaking (so maybe not suited for the make-wifi-fast project)
