1 WAN port on the CM2000 that supports 2.5Gb connection rate speeds with a router that also supports 2.5Gb connection rate speeds. Like NG orbi AX 8 series router. 

My Setup Internet Cable 1000↓/50↑ CAX80 Mode Mode | ISP SparkLight | Wifi Router Orbi RBK853 v4.6.7.5(Router Mode), Wired BackhaulSwitches Netgear GS105/8 | 

Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200/CM2000, Orbi CBK40, CBR750, RBK953(v6.0.3.68) & XR450(v130), RBK853 v4.6.7.5(AP) & RBK752 v4.6.7.5, RBK50(v23), SXK30(v110), R7000(v34), R7800(v84), R7960P(v84), EX7500/EX7700, GS308v3 and WNHDE111

Considering the fact that I only get 940/35, would they perform the same?

Yes they do.

Re: Cm2000 vs cm1200

When you say, "I have 940/35" … just make sure you know that 940 happens to be what you get (the max) over a 1Gbps link. In other words, I 'get' 940 if I have my link to my modem over a 1Gbps Ethernet link, but I get 1190 Mbps over a 2.5Gbps link. All of that is useless if you don't have the switch that supports mGig all the way to your end equipment, unless you are splitting up the bandwidth over multiple devices and don't care if you can never get greater than 940 on one device.  You still need an mGig (2.5Gbps) capable port on your router to connect to a CM2000 otherwise you are wasting the modem's potential (and only novel definining feature).

Yes, you'll need a switch and router that supports 2.5Gb connection rates. Also you'll need a PC network adatper as well. Most current routers (LAN side) and LAN adapters mostly support 1000Mbps max. so you'll not see much over 900Mpbs. I see around 940Mpbs on my system.
