These are more like Raspbery Pis than routers. These are probably not great routers since one of the two ethernet ports and possibly also the wifi is attached internally via USB 2. This puts a bunch of extra load on the CPU and is kinda hacky.
These don't run stock OpenWrt (but can run a "FriendlyWrt" fork) and are meant to run a full Linux distro like Armbian.
These might be more useful for running services on the mesh.
* Single-antenna 2.4 GHz only WiFi

* Powerful quad-core processor
* 512 MB to 1 GB of ram
* Boot from microSD with full operating system
* 2x Gbit ethernet (except for the R1 which has 1x 100 Mbit and 1x Gbit)
