Keba - "Equation is simple:
CCQ = (100 - Error_Rate) * Current_Rate / Highest_Rate"
Now CCQ, is probably just 100 - Error_Rate, which is really what it should have always been. Taking the data rates into account seems useless, as the data rates are already reflected in AMC, that's what AMC is for!
So we went from having three different values that all reflect data rates, down to two values:
AMC/AMQ (didn't change):
Sriram - "Capacity is related to the device's :
1) RX and TX transmit rates
2) RX and TX packet error rates.
3) Maximum possible RX and TX rates for the mode
So its the average of
((TX_RATE * 100)/MAX_TX_RATE) * (100 - TX_PER)/100
((RX_RATE * 100)/MAX_RX_RATE) * (100 - RX_PER)/100
The capacity for 1x1 devices is capped to 50%, so the value is divided by 2.
Quality is weighted average computed using TX/RX rates, TX/RX signal RSSI, TX/RX PER "

Yes, it is strange, now my CCQ readings are pretty much meaningless, they all rocketed way up with the new firmware. Not sure what to believe, the old readings or the new readings.
You can believe them both if you want.
The old CCQ was more of a number that contained a tx rate over theoretical max rate multiplier.
The new CCQ is simply a quality value at the current rate (errors/retries, etc), more of a PER.
Now when datarate drops, the CCQ doesn't also drop, like it was. Logical thinking was when the rate drops, quality improves, but CCQ was showing the opposite.
Plus CCQ at static rate never used this rate multiplier, so everyone thought AutoRate had bugs because CCQ at Auto Rate was always way less than Static Rate.
If you want to know a capacity based quality value you can still look at the AirMax Capacity, or just take a look at the rate itself.
