Just an FYI having deployed both, it's not possible to do a

partially (can't do a weight of 0 for one link). For many of our branch
sites, we'll have a coax primary and a DSL or T1 ...
The 50E does have an ASIC but I don't think it has the full hardware
enc-dec capabilities of the 60 and later, since its only rated for
200Mbps IPSEC throughput vs 1Gbps (60D/E) per the flawed datasheets. CPU
is low during transfers, maybe 5-10%. If ...
Throwing my 50 cents in ;) Got 2x 50Es 5.4.4 (one just upped to 5.4.5)
with a tunnel up, 1Gbps fiber one end and a 120x25 cable on the other
end. Best I can do upload on fiber is 45Mbps. Now Here's the crazy part-
I tried an SSLVPN from a laptop on t...
90E is SLOWER than the 60E for many different UTM feature throughputs,
it's unbelievable. There was another thread on this recently, with
someone suggesting the 90E was more CPU driven while the 60E had the
(SoC3?) full ASIC.
