Newbie concerned about speed

We have lasers already; however, we were told the routers would be faster for cutting monogram door hangers. We are cutting 1/2” cabinet grade 3ply plywood. We are using an 1/8” straight cut bit. We have xcarve 1000. Recommendations?

Are you looking for speed and feed recommendations?
Are you looking to rough and finish the piece in one pass? Or using a single bit opposed to using a rougher and a finisher?

What rate does your laser cut through 1/2" plywood?
Inches/mm per minute.
