Not yet, but I'm supposed to have access to a board courtesy of PC
Engines before you'll be able to buy them. I'll post a thorough review
including performance numbers after I get my hands on one.

I've used a WRAP, even with pfsense and m0n0wall 1.3x, and it's fast
enough to keep up with my 15 Mb cable modem even with 3000-4000 pps of
BitTorrent traffic. I would be comfortable using one on as much as a
20 Mb connection, though I wouldn't go any higher than that. With
m0n0wall 1.2x, you'd be fine up to 30-35 Mb at least.
