Ipq8072a VS MT7986A Speed performance comparison

I want to ask a question, why is IPQ8072A so powerful? At least that’s what Qualcomm’s official website says, but wireguard or wifi6 is very slow, only 200Mbps at most. shadowsocks or v2ray is up to 300mbps.
So I want to ask, is it because ipq8072a does not have hardware acceleration? Investigate why is this? NSS has never yielded any results. Could it be said that the hardware of ipq8072a is not as good as MTK?
I've never had such good results with the 301w, which disappoints me.

this would indicate it's not related to the device ?

I can easily achieve 3x or more with speedtest using a WRX36 as AP.

I don't exactly have the hardware that is suitable for a comparative test, but with my WRX36 as a wireguard client I get approx. 400 MBits downstream, my cable connection only delivers 400/12 MBit/s.

Via WLAN without VPN I achieve around 450 MBits with my Samsung Galaxy A52S

If it helps, dumb AP performance. 5GHz@40MHz and Tx Rate@600 AC.

I think ipq8072a is very slow. Is there some driver or magic attack that is not loaded?

I have no issues passing the gigabit barrier using parallel streams in iperf3.

Are you referring to my speeds? I get around 81%-ish of 100%. I don't think that's too bad tho...

The benchmark results are in bytes per second processed.

Yep, and the ipq8072 have higher clock than mt7986a

& no parallel processing

all these tests are with QCA ECM etc that are community builds +

yes mediatek are much more open but qualcomm has a "secret sauce" that is not opensource!

But 8071 is the slowest in this ipq807x family, half clock speed compared with 8072

Thanks @rmandrad

Waiting device based on MT7988 (FiLogic-880) ....

I am waiting for my Banana Pi BPI-R4 to come in next 1-2 weeks, then we can have some data about Filogic 880

I'll Play with mine after 15th december... Do You have gear for ten gig?

I have 10G internet, plus Synology NAS with 10G NIC, currently I also have Buffalo WXR-5950AX12 which is pending to flash OpenWrt

it is a qnap 301w

cat /proc/cpuinfo
Showing it's IPQ8072 or 8072A? (the former one seems to be lower clock a little bit)
