Firmware Interface

CPU clock speed up to 800MHz (Freescale Semiconductor QorIQ P1014)
Hardware NAT acceleration w/ AR8327N switch (.. but not currently, or likely anytime soon, with OpenWrt)

On the OpenWrt forums

OpenWrt boot log posted by Gabor Juhos
P1014 @ 800MHz (P1014RDB board), 128MB DRAM, 168c:abcd (hm.) and 168c:0033 (AR9580) PCI IDs

On the OpenWrt wiki

There would appear to be two versions of the device..

Review on (ES) (w/ excellent internal photos)

De-heatsinkized CPU visible as a Freescale P1014NSN5HFA (P1014) - not a P1010.. but there does not appear to be anything significantly different between the two models (P1010 appears to have 3x GbE SGMII [vs. P1014's 2x) and trusted boot support)
WiFi chips visible in their photos as AR9580 (AR9580-AR1A) and AR9381
USB 2.0 hub (P1014 has only 1x USB 2.0) is a Genesys Logic GL850G
"2050500289" and "Rev:1.0" is silkscreened on the board.

Review on

specifies WiFi chips as AR9385 (no) and AR9381
