Good evening,

I was wondering if an MT7688 SoC that features a 580 MHz MIPS CPU
is feasible for running wireguard? With either 64 or 128 MB RAM.

To be specific, we are considering to get a a batch of Omega2/Omega2
[0][1] and deploy IPv6 nodes on it that get their IPs via wireguard.

If anyone has experience with such lowe power device, any input would be
appreciated.

Best,

Nico

For our application (Althea) we run Wireguard on embedded routers, I think the most similar CPU I have experience with is the MT7621[1] in the Edgerouter X.  We see a little over 100mbps of throughput with that. 

This chip is lower clocked and single rather than dual core. So expect low to mid double digit mbps (10-40mbps). Hard to predict more than that without trying it out. 

You don't need to concern yourself with ram, I would be far more concerned about getting your hands on the LEDE fork they are using on these devices. I'm not seeing a source code link after glancing at the site. 

If you don't have the kernel sources you can't build a WireGuard module. They may have their own build in a repository but I don't think you want to be at their mercy for updates either.
