Meaningful difference 820 vs 850 suggestions

Besides the throughput, sessions, zones, address objects, decrypt sessions, does anyone have suggestions on noticeable differences between the 820 vs 850  for performance?

I don't have 850s (yet), but I will be rolling some out in the coming months.  Looking at the spec sheet @Raido posted I think really tells the whole story.  There's not "much" difference.  The biggest most important thing is probably the 10G capabilities.

 

I think in practice the 850 might be a bit faster on commits perhaps.  If you talk to your SE and you've got an NDA they'll likely tell you the no-kidding performance differences, but I bet there isn't much.

 

In general though it's my understanding there's some logging /sec limitations (Though it's still "high") on the 8XX series.  

 

 

So I'd talk to your SE about logging and 10G needs if you're looking into the 800 series.
