FG-60e vs FG-60f

Can anyone tell me why 60f has "only" 700.000 concurrent sessions over 1.300.000 of the "older" 60e?

    Probably due to the CPU but keep in mind the FGT60E is lower thruput.
     
    A FGt60F has 8 core  ARMv7 processor 1200mhz fwiw
     
    e.g ( get hardware cpu ) 
     
    processor : 7
    CPU Frequency : 1200 MHZ 
    model name : ARMv8 Processor rev 4 (v8l)
    BogoMIPS : 100.00
    Features : fp asimd aes pmull sha1 sha2 crc32
    CPU implementer : 0x41
    CPU architecture: 8
    CPU variant : 0x0
    CPU part : 0xd03
    CPU revision : 4

    Memory size has the most impact on the number of concurrent sessions. And, as far as I know, both models feature 2 GB of RAM. A faster CPU accelerates the rate of new sessions (although not much, according to the datasheets), but has no negative impact on any performance figure that I know of. Look at the throughput figures for AV, IPS, threat protection, they are up by a factor of 3 - this is not due to higher CPU performance but the new generation of ASICS/SPs.
    If you really consider putting so many sessions on a tiny box like this, even only 50% of the datasheet maximum figure, you are ill advised IMHO. These 60s are fanless desktop boxes, good for a couple of 10.000 sessions but anything beyond asks for a 3-figure-FGT (100F and above).
    First model with more than 2 GB is the 80F. The datasheet figures do not reflect this unambiguosly, though. You will notice in memory usage while it's running.
