Setting up an OpenVPN router on the Pi is pretty straight forward but what about performance? How much performance do we lose by using the Raspberry Pi or the Banana Pi? I have been testing a few different models to see what the overall performance difference is. I also wanted to compare them against each other. OpenVPN is heavy on the CPU due to it's encryption, there are a lot of guides out there about turning the encryption of but why even use a VPN then? It all depends on what you use your VPN tunnel for and what kind of through put you actually need. In this test I have used all three main versions of the Raspberry Pi and a Banana Pi.
