It seems to me an off the shelf PC with a Core 2 Duo processor, 4 gig of memory, and a gigabit ethernet port would be 1-2 orders of magnitude faster than what's currently in the routers. Optimize for a multithreaded CPU, add a second and it would converge really fast. My own experience is that zebra / quagga blow away the performance of any router out there as long as you don't ask them to install the routes in the kernel (which is really slow in a general purpose OS).
