how does underlaying Hardware/Software effect VPN performance ?
On a PC itself, we do not test what speeds each of those features/settings/environments get.
The biggest factor will generally end up being how many threads the firewall will allow (how many CPUs it'll use.) This is controlled by licensing, and the selected size of the firewall (small, medium, large, etc.)
You can see the published speeds in the VPN column of the datasheet here:
If you'd like to test drive FireboxV, your sales rep should be able to help get a trial license for you to check it out.

in the meantime I did some testing
( M300 <--> FireboxV ) direct connected
endpoint 1. behind M300 ( NAS with ramdisk )
endpoint 2. behind FireboxV, connecting to SMB share on endpoint 1.
what i found:
when I find time , i will test with differen tool,ramdisk and 10Gbe setup
