Max WIFI speed 300mbps with R7800 on 5ghz network

So I noticed on all the devices I've tested (S7 Edge, Tab S2,  Surface Book) I cant seem to get above 300mbps for my Wifi Speed connecting on the 5ghz to my R7800.  Is there something I'm missng?

 

The mode is set to up to 1733 and there isnt anything else sharing the channel.

Those 3 devices all likely have 2x2 stream 802.11ac.  The maximum link speed would be 867 Mbps.  Real world Wi-Fi speeds are typically between 30% and 50% of the link speed, so I would say that 300 Mbps is pretty reasonable.

 

You would need a 4x4 stream Wi-Fi adapter to achieve 1733 Mbps.  Good luck finding one.

Thanks for the heads up.  I did see the Tab S2 hit 500+ a few times last night, but now it seems stuck at 300mbps.  I just thought it was odd that those items never got above that and they are all new Wireless AC devices.
