Ugh.  Got any hard numbers on the top speed of the edgerouter with shaping?

At work we recently upgraded our link from 60/10 to 100/15 and the WNDR 
I have running the show can no longer keep up.  I've been looking for a 
replacement and the edgerouter lite was looking like a possibility.

I tried to use a TPLink AC1750 thinking that a newer setup with a faster 
cpu might be able to keep up.  If I don't have shaping enabled it can do 
200+ Mbit but with shaping it drops considerably.  It's still faster 
than the WNDR but seems to max out at about 85 Mbit.
