Putting the XR500 through its paces, we start our sessions test to see how well the router handles traffic. Starting off at 937Mbps we move to 64 sessions where we see a small drop to 900Mbps. At 128 session we drop a little more to 824Mbps and at 512 session we end at 598Mbps.
Storage performance has always been a strong suite for Nighthawk routers but the XR500 steps up its game giving a top 5 performance with 109 MB/s read and 53 MB/s write.
