Combo modem/router seems faster than router

I currently use the following router: Your text to link here... and this modem: Your text to link here...

The modem seems to be on its way out & reboots just out of the blue.

Teksavvy sent me a test modem/router combo: Your text to link here...

Maybe its just me but is it possible the combo unit is better than the Asus router I use? It literally seems faster. Could my old modem also affect the speed? I was told that Asus router would be very powerful but I literally think this SmartRG combo unit is better. What am I missing?

This is something that is pretty easy to benchmark yourself.

Do a speed test using each on the same device at the same location.
Do multiple tests and see what the average is.
