LAN and WLAN Throughput

I was able to lineup all three Wi-Fi 6 solution we have tested to this point to get a decent comparison top to bottom. In LAN throughput, all three show the same capabilities 941-951MBps.

For 2.4GHz throughput, the AX92U offered the lowest performance at 82Mbps.

5GHz performance was tested with 80MHz and 160MHz; the AX92U bringing in 447Mbps @80MHz and 898Mbps @160MHz.

Throughput with Distance, Backhaul and a touch of Storage

Above, we have throughput at distances of 5,10,20 and 30ft line of sight. For the AX92U, we tested with and without the second node. Starting with 2.4GHz we see 91Mbps for the 92U at 5Ft. This holds quite well in both scenarios out to 20Ft where we see the single node setup move to 79Mbps while the two node holds 86Mbps. At 30Ft this is even more discernable with the single node dropping to 46Mbps while the two node shows 80Mbps.

We have the same thing for the 5GHz band, both setups starting off quite well 616 for the dual node and 630Mbps for the single node. At 10Ft we see a drop in the dual node setup to 579Mbps while the single node holds 631Mbps and 20Ft we see both drop performance between 358 and 378Mbps. At 30Ft we see some separation as the dual node holds 262Mbps and the single node drops to 122MBps.

Above, we have the backhaul throughput of the ASUS AX92U at several distances. As you can see it is very strong at 20Ft holding 778Mbps while 30Ft drops to 498Mbps and 40Ft apart we see 358Mbps.

Finishing off testing, we ran through a few USB 3.0 storage benches with our SanDisk SSD. The AX92U was able to produce 58 MB/s read and 55 MB/s write.
