From what I have been reading on r/HomeNetworking , it is not possible to hit 1Gbit on OpenVPN even with a very powerful desktop chips because Ovpn is single core only, you'll need multiple Ovpn connections to get full Gbit even with a new CPU with AES-NI.

Also Chacha20 used by WG is way lighter on CPU compared to AES used by Ovpn especially on Cpus without AES-NI


Whereas Wireguard is easily able to attain Gbit on half decent CPU. Though I haven't seen much Wireguard benchmarks.

Yep I had seen that thread, but now it is the mainline linux kernel as well. It's high time pfSense added it. OPNsense has wireguard support though.

Meanwhile IPv4 over a IPv6 wireguard tunnel on OpenWRT ;)



@varkey , which VPN provider you using?

Still hasn't been shipped yet lol, got the tracking number, seller is saying they'll ship out tmmrw. I have the tracking number but they haven't sent it out yet.

Its being shipped from Malaysia for some reason not China.

That's good I guess. Would appear as the shipment is coming out of Malaysia. 😝

Few of my AliExpress orders sent through SpecialLine-YW were dispatched via Malaysia and the country of origin was declared as Malaysia. Chinese sellers making use of loopholes I guess.
