I cant wait to see some storage benchmarks. Some modern SOC's offer great support and acceleration for SATA devices, for example the APM82181 being only 1GHz single core, can do 45-50MB/s write speeds, and 75-90MB/s read speeds on the WNDR4700 using the V188.8.131.52 firmware.
But the dual core 1GHz CPU on the R7000 struggles to do even half of that speed over USB 3.
If the new linksys router, makes use of an SOC that can provide proper acceleration for SATA, and the CPU speed is close to or better than that of the WNDR4700, then we may finally get a router that can finally max out a gigabit connection (at least for the read speeds)
