ASUS RT-AC5300 router with 8 antennas

I always joke that average consumers who doesn’t know the difference between routers will go for the routers with the most external antennas. I guess someone in ASUS might have heard that joke and think that its a good idea. Introducing the ASUS RT-AC5300……
OK, jokes aside. The ASUS RT-AC5300 is a tri-band wireless router that delivers up to 1000Mbit/s on the 2.4GHz band and up to 2167Mbit/s on each of the two 5GHz bands, for a combined total of up to 5334Mbit/s. The 4 external antennas are in a four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) configuration, giving a coverage of up to 500 square meters.
With Link Aggregation (802.11ad), you can combine two LAN ports into one superfast 2Gbit/s wired connection using two network cables.
Singapore launch date and pricing is not available yet. But this is definitely something worth looking out for.
