Benchmarks - Wireless Throughput

In our 2.4GHz testing, the Nighthawk was right inline with the 1750DHP from Buffalo. One thing of note here is if you want to make use of the 600Mbps 2.4GHz speeds, then you need an adapter with TurboQAM available. Unfortunately, our adapter does not yet support this but should with a future update.

5GHz throughput really picked up for the R7000; here you can see it carries much more bandwidth across each signal rate topping the charts with an 80MHz real-world throughput of 451Mbps.
