7206VXR IPSec throughput

I would like to terminate two or three tunnels (3DES) on a 7206VXR w/NPE-G2. I expect throughput to peak at 30Mb/s.

How much throughput can I squeeze out of a 7206 [before I want to add hardware-assist, e.g. SA-VAM2+]?

Stuart,

From the Q&A on the VAM;

Q. Do the Cisco 7200 Series routers support IPsec without a hardware encryption module?

A. We do not recommend using IPsec without hardware encryption. It should be noted that we do not test software-based IPsec.
