It's a short story for the lone retested AC3200 class router, Linksys' EA9200. Ranking didn't change; it retained its bottom rank of the three products tested. The Ranker Performance Summary below shows #3 ranks for all three wireless sub-rankings.
Linksys EA9200 Ranker Performance Summary
Comparing 5 GHz downlink throughput vs. attenuation plots for the three AC3200 routers tested, we can see a definite improvement in the EA9200's overall throughput vs. attenuation curve and later disconnection.

On the other hand, 2.4 GHz uplink performance actually got worse at higher signal levels (lower attenuation values).
