With the rapid development of network size and great increase of Internet traffic, it has become a crucial work to improve the forwarding performance of the core devices of Internet or the routers. In this study, the analysis and comparison of instruction cycles occupied by the machine in the process of route lookup in IP forwarding and vector forwarding were carried out which may determine the forwarding performance of a router. The simulation experiments were also made to study the forwarding efficiency of IP forwarding and vector forwarding. The theoretical and experimental results prove that the vector forwarding method is more efficient than IP forwarding which can provide powerful evidence to the application of vector network in the Internet.
