AAEON UP Squared Developer Board - Intel N3350 dual-core CPU and 2G with AES-NI- $99 + $10 ship, OBO

It only needs a 5v DC 4A-6A PSU, which is pretty uncommon. Most are 12V.

Pretty neat little board. Has AES-NI if you want to use it for a router/firewall with VPN…

Is this like a raspberry pi on steroids?

Basically yes. It’s an Intel x86 based board, so you can run pretty much anything for x86 on it.

I should add that I’ve messed around with this board a bit for work. If anybody has questions, I’ll do my best to answer.

What kind of speeds does this thing produce? Would you expect it to route at gig speeds?

With a basic firewall install, it can route at 1Gbps no problem. When you introduce other packages, performance may suffer.

Makes sense, still a cool little board. Would make a great WireGuard node/endpoint for backups.
