Can anyone with the MBr with a AC wireless router perform big file size transferring over AC router and let us know the speeds they're getting? I and probably like many other want to know because since this laptop only has 1 port for everything so when in need of transferring files, a fast AC wireless is definitely help.

For reference, on my 15" Late 2013 I'm getting in the range of 80-100MBps when transfer big file (10GB or more) over my Netgear AC3200 router.

Any inputs would be great! Thanks ;)

I can test when I get home later but if I recall correctly, the rMBP has a 3x3 (1.3Gbps top speed) antenna vs the rMB which has a 2x2 (867Mbps top speed). So I'd expect slower by some margin.

what?!!! you get 80-100MBps??? what's the distance?


i tried with my 13'' rmbp before, when i'm put my laptop right on top of my router, i get 90 max, but usually ~80.
and my iMac (one floor above the router) usually get 50-70. and rmbp gets 40-60
and macbook gets 40-60 in the same room, but mostly 40-50 range. so just a little slower than rmbp in longer ranges. didn't test on extremely short range.

About 6-10 feet away from my router.
