I just signed up an account and will add my vote.

I just bought an Archer 20 to replace my old 2016 Zyxel running OpenWrt. 
I'd found it by looking at various reviews of "best OpenWrt router for 
2021". I just updated my Zyxel firmware from v18 to v20 firmware. I get 
about 280 Mbps from Xfinity. I turned on cake and it dropped by 50%! So I 
think the old router's CPU isn't up to it. I'll be swapping in the TP-Link 
soon so I can turn on cake without the big performance hit.
