This board is a cheper version of APU2C2. It has one less NIC, and removed internal SATA connector.

Not sure if this board will have high enough throughput for your needs? Check the APU2C0 throughput test for pfSense and APU2C0 throughput test for IPFire. Short answer is: pfSense can route 620Mbit, IPFire can route a full Gigabit. It's fast enough.
