The Tenda AC9 was the last router I tested with the old Z170 platform. With our new test system, we re-ran it through testing to have it on our new charts.
Running the RT2600ac through testing, I reached a peak of 941.6 Mbps on LAN throughput.
WAN was very close at 923.58 Mbps.
Mobile and Desktop Wireless Throughput
2.4GHz performance was some of the highest I have ever seen reaching 401 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 917 Mbps on the 5GHz band.
Mobile throughput was on par with previously tested solutions - our iPhone 7 Plus reached 97 Mbps and the Android 74 Mbps.
5GHz mobile throughput was much better, proving 312 Mbps for the Android and 552 Mbps for the iPhone.
