"Soon" is a very relative term. Soon for FreeBSD and Netgate may be quite some time yet.

Not holding my breath.......

Also note that the driver apparently supports QAT 1.6 (Coleto Creek; i.e., the PCIe add-in cards) only; i.e., no love for Rangeley / C2x58.

Based on that thread here I was also digging for news about that and I found this thread here on reddit 2 month ago, but
how sad now I am standing on the same point as before, its really odd how much more news are available, how more
confused I am really about that theme. Here is the link to that discussion on Reddit.com

1st comment
The QAT units in the existing SG-series routers will likely never be supported in pfSense. (They work in linux.)
The CPIC card will be, as well as any C3000 units that we sell, that support QAT (not all C3000 CPUs have QAT)
AES-NI is your friend


2nd comment
yes.
that said, there is a QAT 1.5 driver for netbsd, so not all hope is lost.


3rd comment
The new SG-2320 and SG-2340 are for low/mid options like SG-2220 and SG-2440 (no QAT on 2220 either). While still
quite capable, they aren't targeted at that sort of market which requires QAT. They do have AES-NI and are future proof.


What do you think about?
