Help configuring R7800 for Gigabit connection

Are there any special configurations for the R7800 that help in getting as much speed toward 1Gbps as possible for cable connections to the router?

I've read that some people can get about 850 Mbps with R7800. What configs will help me do that?

Most of these config recommendations apply to normal OpenWrt. CPU performance governor, irqbalance, packet steering, and software offloading will get you ~700mbps routing speed (rarely low 800mbps under ideal conditions), halfway down this post I have recommended config options:

If you have a gigabit WAN connection and want true full gig rate you need NSS hardware offloading. Feel free to try one of my builds:
