Any insight? can the Au1500 even try to handle 1000Mbps?



Should be easy to get up and running the benchmarked. The Intel 1G driver (e100?) should run fine on mips with, hopefully, little or no modifications.

Do you see any theoretical limitation on the Au1500 which
would prevent it from utilizing the full 1000Mbps bandwidth?

I haven't done any paper napkin calculations on what it takes to handle the smallest packets, worst case, at 1G. It also depends on what else your CPU is doing. If you're just routing packets you'll get a lot better performance then you would if you're busy doing something else.
