The Redmi AX6 and TP-LINK’s XDR5430 are two models that have been asked about more recently, so there is this test comparison.
From the surface parameters, the highest 5G rate differs by half, the highest 5G rate of XDR5430 is 4804Mbps 。。。。。。 To facilitate understanding, I have organized the parameters into the following table.
The main difference I showed up in red, is that Qualcomm temporarily does not have a single wireless core to support 4x4mimo running at 160MHz bandwidth, what impact does it have? At present there is no impact, because for the time being no receiving device can support 4.8Gbps, later unknown. But if the XDR5430 as a wireless card to use, LAN port output will be more amazing, if the DFS channel does not interfere.
In order to let you clearly understand the difference between 2x2MIMO 160MHz and 4x4MIMO 160MHz, I set both wireless relay, the object is the Asus AX86U. but unfortunately the Redmi AX6 open 160 bandwidth can not be used after the wireless relay, prompting failure, as follows.
XDR5430 will be fine.
Check the wireless rate of XDR5430 in AX86U as follows.
If they are both used as wireless cards, connected to a wireless router that supports 4x4mimo 160MHz bandwidth, the XDR5430’s LAN port output speed is significantly faster than the AX6 at long distances.
Before the test begins to say a few words about the 5G parameter settings for both, as follows.
2.4G is 40 bandwidth and 9 channels.
I. WAN port performance test
A computer was used to simulate a gigabit bandwidth now. The network port on the computer is connected to the WAN of the router, and the computer uses IxChariot software to send a large number of packets to each connected device to measure the limit value. The script uses Ultra_High_Performance_Throughput, ten threads, and one minute of time. Three consecutive measurements are taken, the highest value is taken, and if the maximum value differs significantly from the minimum value, the measurement is repeated.
The results are presented first and then explained.
network cable connected to the LAN port, up and down are no problem, both reached the bottleneck of the gigabit network port.
Other no obvious problems, close distance under the test, to find the right angle and position to easily get the most high-speed. The focus is still on the speed comparison at different distances.
By the way measured the power, both standby power is about the same, a little more than 7W; wireless high-speed transmission when the two power about 12W. Because AX6 body surface many cooling holes, the overall heat is not as large as XDR5430, XDR5430 bottom obviously hot some.
Second, the wireless signal strength comparison test
The two routers are placed in the “WIFI” position in the figure below, and the computers with AX200 wireless cards are tested for signal strength in four positions: A, B, C and D.
The results are as follows.
In a wall of point A location, almost it, 2.4G is considered XDR5430 strong a little;
at the location of point B, which is separated by two walls.
The XDR5430’s 2.4G is significantly stronger at point C, which is 11 meters away in a straight line.
Finally downstairs in the D point position, but also did not see a significant gap to come.
From the curve, the signal of the Redmi AX6 to smooth some.
Next is the focus, with different devices at different distances speed test. Using the self-built speedtest server for speed measurement, this result will be higher than the actual speed, only for comparison reference.
Six times in a row, take the average value for comparison. To save time, we only test 2.4G at C and D locations.
Three, with AX200 wireless network card speed measurement comparison
AX200 support 160MHz bandwidth, two routers also support, the highest connection rate of 2.4Gbp. wireless card driver updated to this version 188.8.131.52, after upgrading the driver feel that the performance has improved some. All results are tabulated below: (Mbps)
5G speed measurement averages are compared as follows.
At the point A position, benefiting from the high speed of AX200, making both measured the bottleneck of the gigabit network port.
In the B point location began to widen the gap, XDR5430 even in the B and C point location can still have 900 megabit speed, until downstairs D point location, can also be close to 900Mbps, Redmi AX6 5G speed is clearly inferior to XDR5430, well there may be a long distance under the AX6 can not be stable with 160MHz bandwidth, or the difference will not be so big.
Then look at the 2.4G speed comparison.
It is also XDR5430 is better.
So with AX200 network card, XDR5430 will be significantly better than AX6.
Four, with QCA6391 wireless network card speed measurement comparison
This wireless card only supports 160MHz, also test the speed to see it, only 5G. all the results are as follows.
5G average comparison.
The result is reversed with AX200 ah, Redmi AX6 to be faster. Really should be acwifi that: Qualcomm see Qualcomm, speed is not mediocre.
2.4G average comparison.
About the same.
V. Speed measurement comparison with Xiaomi 10 cell phone
Xiaomi 10 with WIFI module is also Qualcomm’s QCA6391, see mediocre not mediocre, all the results are as follows: (Mbps)
5G average comparison.
The difference in downlink speed is not much, the difference in uplink speed is a bit bigger, XDR5430 has some advantages.
The speed measurement of Xiaomi 10, XDR5430 is faster.
QCA6391 wireless network card speed measurement, Redmi AX6 faster.
Why is this? I do not know.
Six, using Apple SE2 cell phone speed measurement comparison
IPhone SE2 phone is Broadcom WIFI chip, the highest connection rate of 1.2Gbps, look at what condition, all the results are as follows table: (Mbps)
5G average comparison.
In the close proximity of the A point position, AX6 is a little stronger, other positions are still XDR5430 strong, but not significantly. Uplink speed is also XDR5430 faster.
Look at the 2.4G speed and.
2.4G is not much to look at. Some people will say how the Apple phone 2.4G speed than the Xiaomi 10 slow these many, this is the difference between 20MHz bandwidth and 40MHz bandwidth ah.
Seven, MU-MIMO effect test
The XDR5430 was not found to have the MU-MIMO effect in the actual test, and I hope that TPLINK can solve this problem through optimization in the future.
In reality, MU-MIMO is difficult to take effect, so there is no need to dwell on it. Even if MU-MIMO is not supported, it does not affect the use. For example, without MU-MIMO support, multiple WIFI6 devices can also be transmitted at the same time about 800 megabytes of speed, in the gigabit network port constraints, the difference is not large.
From the results of different speed measurement, in addition to the use of wireless network card QCA6391 is Redmi AX6 faster some other devices are XDR5430 performance is better. So I believe the XDR5430 wireless quality will be better than the red rice AX6, why I say wireless quality does not say signal strength? The strength alone is useless ah, to speed is cool. XDR5430’s heat is indeed significantly greater than AX6, CPU performance is strong red rice AX6. To see clearly their own needs.
If you want a stronger signal, XDR5430
If you want a lower temperature, the red rice AX6
If you can’t decide, pick the cheap one.
