I have small computers with VIA processors that have the padlock hardware witch provide an incredible boost to most common cryptographic operations. I'm serioulsy considering sticking with these computers, at least as front end to ssl.

I've been interested in VIA's hardware too - could you elaborate on what kind of performance gain you're seeing, and what hardware your considering deploying?
