Im looking for very cheap (under 80$), extreemely powersavvy pc with AES support. This machine will work 24/7 in my home (i pay the bills).
At first I was thinking about Raspberry Pi 3 or RPi 3 + but i found that its bottleneck is gigabit NIC which is based on usb lane or something like that. In the other hand ODROID C2 has significantly better gigabit NIC and AES support as well.
I did some research in older cpus, most of the are either not power efficient enough or doesn’t have AES (Atoms) or are quite expensive. I found that old AMD E1-2100 has also AES support, are very power efficient and used netbooks with them (like ACER Aspire V5 V5-123) are quite cheap.
Im not interested in PC Engines boards, routerboards or similar things used widely for pfsense as they are quite pricey.
