Netgate 8200 New 10GbE and 2.5GbE Firewall Appliance Launched

Netgate has a new appliance designed for 10GbE and 2.5GbE networking. The new Netgate 8200 replaces the Netgate 7100 series in the lineup and utilizes a Denverton Refresh SoC to provide new functionality.

Netgate 8200 New 10GbE and 2.5GbE Firewall Appliance Launched

The Netgate 8200 slots between the Netgate 6100 and the higher-end Xeon D-based offerings. It utilizes the Intel Atom C3758R processor. That is an 8-core Intel part with Intel QuickAssist (QAT) technology. We did not do a QAT piece with the C3000 series, but we recently looked at Ice Lake with QAT Card, Xeon D-2700 series, and even the upcoming 4th Generation Intel Xeon Sapphire Rapids server that you can see in our Hands-on Benchmarking with Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Accelerators piece and in the video:

Part of the new Netgate 8200 series offering is that it comes with pfSense Plus, which is able to take advantage of the onboard QAT accelerator. The “R” refresh part also added another 200MHz to the clock speed for approximately 9% more performance. One also gets 16GB of non-ECC single-channel memory (soldered) and a 128GB NVMe SSD. This is a nice update in this class of devices.

Netgate says this unit is good for 18.6Gbps iperf traffic and 11.76Gbps using the more complex IMIX for L3 forwarding. With 10,000 ACLs in a firewall configuration, those numbers are 18.55Gbps and 5.1Gbps respectively. Using the QAT accelerator offload with IPsec, Netgate says 3.24Gbps and 810Mbps respectively.
