What are realistic expectations for r610 throughput?

I'm running 3 r610 APs configured through Ruckus Cloud Wifi.  The site has gigabit internet (gig speed down, ~30 meg up).  Wired speed tests give me about 915 down but through wireless my speeds are much slower - 530 down is the best I got so far.  These devices can do 1300 Mbps, and I know there is network overhead so I won't get the full amount, but I'm surprised this speed isn't up around 700 or 800.  Is this too much to expect from r610 APs?  Does anyone else get higher speeds and if so, how did you get there?

Hi there Paul, 
create a 5GHz specific SSID, set up the channel width for 5GHz radios in your venue to 80MHz, grab a Pixel3 or latest MBP, make sure you connect to that 5GHz SSID (all this is to make sure your client and AP are on the best performance setting), and test away. Finally, download Ruckus SpeedFlex mobile app (its free) to test the air performance between AP and Client, to see what you can get irrespective of your WAN connection.
