Wireguard compatible with Omega2 / Omega2+

For our application (Althea) we run Wireguard on embedded routers, I think the most similar CPU I have experience with is the MT7621[1] in the Edgerouter X.  We see a little over 100mbps of throughput with that. 

This chip is lower clocked and single rather than dual core. So expect low to mid double digit mbps (10-40mbps). Hard to predict more than that without trying it out. 

You don't need to concern yourself with ram, I would be far more concerned about getting your hands on the LEDE fork they are using on these devices. I'm not seeing a source code link after glancing at the site. 

If you don't have the kernel sources you can't build a WireGuard module. They may have their own build in a repository but I don't think you want to be at their mercy for updates either.
