decided to switch on my Pfsense router just now.  running a ARM Cortex-A9 r4p1  processor on the latest version:  2.5.0-DEVELOPMENT (arm) 
built on Fri Nov 27 06:54:52 EST 2020 
FreeBSD 12.2-STABLE

not having ANY performance hits so far whatsoever.  if anything it seems more responsive

I ran the "openssl crypto speed test" from OpenVPN for Android in the settings
I added CHACHA, but seems it's not faster then AES-256-GCM?

using Samsung S21 Ultra (exynos 2100)

edit: disregard, seems this CPU has AES-NI

@StaffYup - TCP and UDP working fine! Just was excited to try the new encryption but I just spent some time reading up on it and it seems like my device doesn't need it as it supports the AES encryption :) I guess for most new smartphones, tablets etc. they don't need to use this new encryption right? There's no real benefit, unless it is a device which does not suport the other encryption types?

Hi! 
Just a question: which RPI are you using? can you make a speedtest to measure download and upload speeds? Are you sure that rpi supports AES encryption? As far as i know it does in none of its versions...
