According to this Cisco doc:
a 7200VXR G2 comes close to doing 1G (with 950 for either 3DES or AES),
with an ASR1k with at least ESP-5G doing up to 1.8G/s ... surprised it
is able to push that much ... :)

Alternatively, an ASA 5580-20 is rated at doing a maximum of 1G VPN ...
albeit, not with any MPLS (unless the higher boxes have something in
there now)
