    93   The minimum desired speed for your Tor relay is 256 kbps.

    95   With one modern CPU core, you will be able to push ~100 Mbps. If you want to do more than that, you need to run more than one Tor process. There is [https://www.torservers.net/wiki/setup/server#multiple_tor_processes a modified initscript]  to help you with that.  Ideally, you have a CPU with [https://www.torservers.net/wiki/setup/server#aes-ni_crypto_acceleration AES-NI support], which allows around 300 Mbps per core.

Torservers.net published a helpful setup guide at https://www.torservers.net/wiki/setup/server. It helps you with some improvements such as kernel settings and settings in your torrc, so you can have a super-fast relay. This is really helpful for the Tor network.
