File Transfer Speeds
For our router file performance testing, I use a SanDisk Extreme Pro 128GB Flash Drive formatted in the FAT32 or NTFS filesystems. I then use NAS Tester 1.7 with a 100 and 1000 MB file size and loop it five times with an average result being charted.
The Artemis wasn't the strongest router in file performance but did manage 26 MB/s with the 100M file and 24 MB/s with the 1000M file. Switching over to write performance we found a nice increase up to 41 MB/s for the 100M file and 39 MB/s for the 1000M file.
Over the past few months, I have seen most of the Amped Wireless lineup come through, and as I use each solution, I find myself quite happy with the overall quality of their solutions. The Artemis doesn't veer too far from this quality, but you can tell the materials, more specifically the plastics, are thinner and not quite a beefy as the Titan or Athena. With that said, there were no major issues as I used this solution in my home network for a few weeks. I think the biggest negative would be with all the streaming of content I do myself, I ran into more buffering than I'm used to and that could just be me overworking the SoC in the router.
On the performance side, this solution had some solid numbers, reaching 952 and 932 Mbps in LAN and WAN testing while wireless throughput came in at 130 Mbps peak for the 2.4GHz band and 294 Mbps for the 5GHz band. File performance wasn't a strong suit for the Artemis, but it did show some respectable performance at 26 MB/s read and 41 MB/s write.
Overall, I don't dislike the Artemis, it's a solid platform for those wanting to get into 802.11ac and would probably work perfectly fine for the moderate user, but for users like me that stream content with multiple devices quite heavily, you may want to look for a more qualified solution.

The Bottom Line: Amped Wireless' Artemis is a good entry-level solution offering many higher-end features including MU-MIMO. For those wanting anything more than a basic solution, you may want to look at the Titan or Athena.
