Hi WC, that is correct. OpenVPN is single-threaded, which means that only one core from the router can handle VPN encryption. I tested this router out last week with the Sabai OS firmware and was able to hit 41 Mbps with 256-bit OpenVPN on a nearby server (see review). I think the Sabai firmware is allocating all of the non-VPN processor activity to one core, which leaves the other core entirely free for VPN encryption. I know the Merlin firmware also does this to optimize VPN speed. However, I don’t think you’ll be able to get much higher than 40 Mbps with this processor and OpenVPN – the processor just can’t do it. You could upgrade to a higher-powered router, or use a VPN Accelerator, which I found would give me 104 Mbps (see tests here). I’m currently updating this entire guide with this information – should be finished very soon.

We all know it all too well, right? The same can be said for VPN services – you always end up paying one way or another. You might be bombarded with pop-up ads or discover you can’t use your VPN for streaming or torrenting because your connection is excruciatingly slow or your data usage is extremely limited.
