Our next test for this new setup sees how range affects performance. With this, we start at 10Ft and move out to 30Ft. Routers are tested in their default configuration for this part; the client device is the iPhone 7 Plus.
R7000P is light blue in the chart above. With 2.4GHz, we see 101 Mbps at the start and at 20Ft out that drops to 78 Mbps. At 30Ft, we end our testing with 32 Mbps.
The 5GHz band starts at 557 Mbps. Moving to 20Ft, this stays steady, and at 30Ft, we see some movement down to 385 Mbps.
Storage performance wasn't terrible for the R7000P. Write performance topped out at 18 MB/s with a 1GB file size while read performance managed 68 MB/s.
