Poor Upload Speeds on the new Nighthawk X10 (R9000)

I just got a new x10 for Christmas. Replacing a R7000 nighthawk that I moved to another location. I have a symmetrical 100 MB FTTH connection to the outside world. Download speeds are as expected, at or near 100 MB, but upload speeds are around 1/2 what they should be, never reaching 60 MB. The only settings in the QOS area are WMM 2.4 and 5 GHz. No upload limits, etc like on the R7000. The Firmware version of my X10 (R9000) is 1.0.1.36, the latest/greatest off of the website. With the R7000, I always achieved 100 MB up and down. The last test before I removed it from my system was 110 Mb down/110 MB up. Same results (100/100) if I connect directly to the fiber ONT. I'm a little disappointing that the newer, ultimate router doesn't at least meet the R7000 capabilities? Thoughts or suggestions? Bug to fix in future firmware revisions?

The 1.0.1.36 Release Notes suggest a factory reset after upgrade.

Thanks, I tried that, no change.  Also tried reverting to previous Firmwares, no change in upload speeds.  Running Win 10 Pro 64 bit on a current i7.

Here's a screen shot of my transfer with the R7000 nighthawk, or if I patch directly into the fiber ONT.

@Canyoncreek I strongly encourage you to submit a case to support for them to see what's going on.

They may ask for you to send them some debug logs to further diagnose the issue.
