How is the usb transfer speed on this thing, my armor g5 (Qualcomm IPQ8074A) can do 300/200MB/s.
Here you go, some actual benchmarks, on a GT-AX6000. CPU usage was never above 3%, so as I've already pointed out, it's about lack of optimisation, not due to lack of CPU power. Write performance is pretty terrible. A quad core Cortex-A53 at 2 GHz should be far more capable than this. Real world speeds are somewhat slower.

Isn't GT-AX6000 bottlenecked by its 2.5G lan port/nic?
My zyxel has a 10G port, but my netgear/nic have 5G ports, or maybe Qualcomm has some secret sauce, it's the only manufacturer I've seen with decent usb performance.

Huh? I don't get anywhere near 2.5 Gbps speeds. This is what you get from an x86 powered NAS using 2.5 Gbps.

Again, it's not a secret sauce, it's poor optimisation on several levels, from USB 3.0 to SMB to anything.
There are a ton of things that needs to be optimised for the specific hardware in Linux to give you the maximum storage performance.
You guessing the reason doesn't help and you clearly haven't been involved in developing hardware and thus don't have an understanding of how complex it is to optimise the performance for something like this. It costs time and money and since most people either don't use it or don't care, no real effort is being put into making it better than it currently is.

I'm surprised you get over 280MBps on 2.5GbE connection with real throughput a bit over 2.3Gbps.
 
I know 2.5 Gbps = 312.5 MB/s, but routers with multiple multi-gig ports always have better results on the fastest port(10G vs 2.5).

Well, it's not a one off, feel free to check out the review I wrote about that NAS. That said, CDM is only 1 GB of data, so it might be cached in RAM, thus going faster than expected. The fastest file copy test was almost 253 MB/s.
 
Who uses a hard drive anymore, ssds all the way.
i use hard drives for some backups some of my drives are over 8 years old running 24/7 , might be slow but they last . Sometimes they are good enough
 
I just got the Asus RT-BE88U

A very good update from the AX88u

Is there any ETA for asuswrt-merlin firmware on this router?

Weird design. I guess you need a switch pre router on 10G home networks. (ironic because its 8 port.. split 2.5/1G 4+4 )

Could buy a 10G Ethernet SFP.. but that kind of defeats the purpose.

Would be more logical to invest into a better design or competitor offering for a little more assuming youre on mutli gig.

Why is the design weird? Why would a switch be needed pre-router (which also wouldn’t work since a switch has no routing capabilities)?
