Your question is simple but the answer may not be that simple.  The bandwidth capacity is not just the function of how much bandwidth you can get from a device, is a function of a catalogue things.

I think what you want, is throughput and throughput is dictated by the number of features you have enabled on your router, e.g.

routing protocol and number of routes
Quality of Service

Some of these features line VPN, if you enable them on your router, could seriously impact the throughput you get.  The logic is, the more features you put on your router, the lower the throughput you get.

Please note also, that every platform is different and as a matter of fact, they performance or throughput is also different. I have attached the datasheet of Cisco 892 which you can also see at "Cisco 890 Series Integrated Services Routers" @
