Which chipset each of these have ?

The HomeHub 2.0a has a Broadcom BCM6358 CPU (MIPS32 core)
The HomeHub 2.0b has a Lantiq Danube (MIPS32 core)

Older models of 2Wire 2700-HG* have a 2Wire Perseus CPU (TriMedia TM3260 VLIW core)
Newer models of 2Wire 2700-HG* have a 2Wire Ares CPU (TriMedia TM3260 VLIW core)

The Thomson ST585v6 has a Broadcom BCM6348 CPU (MIPS32 core)

cheers, a

Are there any test conducted for all f these on the same line or for some of these on the same line ?

On my 52.5dB 3 mile line (INP 1.4 to 1.6, variable, with 2700HGV), a 2Wire 2700HGV/HG-B will sync above the 5120 required for a 4500 profile, but invariably retrains after a few days to somewhere between 4600 to below 5120, depending on the time of day/night. My profile is therefore usually 4000.

An ST585v6 or Homehub 2A will sync about 4800 - 4900 and stay up forever - again a profile of 4000.

I generally stick with the 2Wire for its superior stats, user info, etc.

YMMV, of course, and you may find this of interest.

Edit: FWIW my DSLAM vendor is TI - reportedly it can make a difference with certain router/DSLAM combinations.
