WAN speed seriously crippled on R7000

Recently moved to 1gb service from my provider, but my R7000 running either DD-WRT or Advanced Tomato appears to be a huge bottleneck. I did some tests and getting around 300Mbps when running on the R7000 versus 800Mbps when connected directly to my cable modem. I decided to try out a TP-Link AC3200 (which I'm probably going to return as it doesn't support OpenVPN) and was getting 750Mbps. So it is clear that the R7000 is doing something.

Any ideas what could be going on?
