Benchmark Results: IxChariot Response Time
IxChariot also gives us some insight into latency, which will primarily matter to wireless gamers needing instant response times. Shorter is better here.
Interestingly, Linksys and Netgear average into a perfect tie in the 2.4 GHz test, making either a winning choice. ZyXEL takes the bronze and, honestly, we’re not sure we’d trust our reflexes to any of the others. If 80 ms is the threshold for imperceptible delay, giving up 20 ms or more starts to look ominous.
There’s not much to add for 5.0 GHz. Only TRENDnet jumps out of the group with oddly high lag times.
