It should be fine. At least in the case of the Asus models he tested, wifi is connected to the rest over PCI-Express, so no bottleneck like the RT-AC87U had when both its 5 GHz radio and its Realtek switch were connected to the rest over RGMII.Would be interesting to see wired thru put with multiple wired up devices...
with and without CTF or other flow offload things
Might find performance concerns with the SoC/Switch setup...
From the article:Were there any tweaks on the wireless settings or were they left at default settings during testing? Thank you.
From the article:
WPA3 wireless security is used if supported; WPA2 if not. Router defaults were left in place, including standard and "universal" beamforming, airtime fairness (if present) and roaming assist. The only changes I made were to set channels and bandwidth and enable any flavors of OFDMA and MU-MIMO supported.
I'm not that positive about that one. The test did not associate two Group 1 (2 stream AX, 0 attenuation) STAs at the start of the test. That would tell you what the max potential throughput was. I'll have to run that test separately.2) about 1.5gbps is the current max for 5ghz.
Thank you.@Amato_C I don't plan any further OFDMA-specific testing. My conclusion after trying many different methods for about a year is that OFDMA effects are difficult to see without many more STAs than I have been using. It will take years, as it did with MU-MIMO, for chip makers to get airtime schedulers tuned and for there to be a critical mass of AX-capable devices in the field.
I plan to have this be part of my standard benchmarks. But I can't run this test on 6E until octoScope upgrades the testbed and, of course, more 6E routers are available.Very nice test. Would love to see this re-done on 6E.
Same exact test, just add 6E (tri-band AP) and some 6E devices.
Would probably make the best case for a 6E AP Throughput improvement. (and 160MHz is a viable case here)
