    NEW FEATURE ANNOUNCEMENT: CONNECTION BENCHMARK

    Having a good Internet line is a vital part of every home- whether it’s getting high speeds for streaming to having a stable line for gaming. But current ways of measuring your line are inaccurate, since they can only run on your home devices and not on your line itself. We designed Connection Benchmark to solve this problem.

    Connection Benchmark is a pure test of your Internet line, measuring all the key metrics you care about with extreme accuracy. This lets you find out if you’re truly getting the Internet speeds you pay for, and how high quality the line to your home really is.

    Because the test runs directly on your DumaOS Powered router rather than from a PC or phone, it is the most accurate and powerful test of its kind. It cannot be weakened by a poor connection between your device and your router like a normal speed test can, giving you the ultimate insight into your home connection.

    Each test you run will grade your line based on your speeds, ping and bufferbloat results, indicating whether there’s a problem and informing your QoS settings. Soon you will be able to find out how your results compare to other people in your region or on your ISP, so you can see how well supported your area is and whether your home falls below average.

    DumaOS 3.0 is the biggest update we have ever built, effectively doubling the feature set. Connection Benchmark is just one of many features coming to your router with DumaOS 3.0, so stay tuned for our next feature announcement.

    A Netduma Owner believes the new Duma OS 3 it looks like Cubic Congestion Control is used which is not particular good for gamers ?

    A snippet of his Comments @Od1n

    For those who dont fully understand what i mean here is a picture from google:

    In the last few seconds of the Netduma Video above you can see the bandwidth graph which basically looks like left graph below in the picture. This is bad and causes lag. What you want is the right graph it gives more bandwidth AND less lag. It has some downsides but those could be adressed by the R1 only assigning BBR to gaming devices for example.

    Just need to find the Netduma R2 Hardware specs for CPU ?

    Edit: looks like Netduma R2 uses a MediaTek CPU (MediaTek MT7621AT (880 MHz, 2 cores)) and MediaTek Wifi Chipsets, at least that explains why the Netduma R2 is such great value at just £130 but may struggle due to its average CPU chipset choice.
