I'm looking for a low power device to be a VPN end point, and I am after 
recommendations, please.

The key requirement is high VPN throughput.  I lean towards OpenVPN, but 
because it's single-threaded, it seems there are often struggles to get 
anywhere close to native throughput.  I understand IPSec implementations 
are/can be multithreaded, so that might better fit the bill.

HDMI and GPU and desktop stuff is not important.  Just low power, high 
crypto throughput, high reliability and solid Linux support.
