Note, on other websites it's incorrectly reported that this CPU has base frequency of 1.2GHz. This is incorrect. The base frequency is 1Ghz, and the boost frequency is 1.4Ghz.
More details about the CPU design can be found on AMD's website.
This CPU has built-in AES-NI support, which makes it suitable for VPN. OpenVPN throughput is a little above 100-145 Mbit/s, because it's using only 1 CPU core. Wireguard thoughput is about 600Mbit/s, because it's using all 4 cores.
