openvpn speed. Router vs Open vpn gui?

I have NordVPN and i've loaded the Open vpn gui and tested the speed and then i configured the router for open vpn on the same serverd. (not at the same time)

 

I have 100Mbps service.

I got 80Mbps when useing the GUI on the pc.

I got 20Mbps when the open vpn client was configured on my router.

I have the latest version of tomato loaded on my r7000.

My pc is a AMD 4300 quad core 3.8 mhz 8gig ram and a $350 graphics card.

 

could the difference be that the pc can encryped/decrypt faster then the router?

I'm not at an IT level but have build and setup my own routers for years. 

Thanks

That's funny. i just got back from bestbuy with a R7800. But now i can't find support for it from tomato or DD-WRT. Can you tell me what support there is for it please.

Thanks

Hey T,

Hey T,

Did the R7800 performance meet your expectations? Can you post the numbers for this router for the VPN client throughput speeds?
