*As reported by Ixia ixChariot v7.10 SP3. Test conducted by Tolly comparing EA8500/AC2600 router compared to 2 similar single user MIMO competitor routers. 4.6x claim is based on the greatest difference in throughput to a single MU-MIMO capable device.
Notes: Linksys running MU-MIMO Router. All testing using 5GHz. Average of three runs.

Testing done in the United States with a MU-MIMO router produced for use in the United States.
**The standard transmission rates–600 Mbps or 1733 Mbps (for 5 GHz), 800 Mbps (for 2.4 GHz), 54 Mbps, and 11 Mbps–are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on the mix of wireless products used and external factors.
