Some time ago we have mentioned that the first batch of WiFi 6E devices authorized by the US Federal Communications Commission, now some certified WiFi 6E routers are on sale.
Among them, the world’s first WiFi 6E router comes from Asus, and the device model is ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000. The price is 550 US dollars.
Although the 802.11ax standard is also used, WiFi 6E devices can extend the use of the 6GHz frequency band, separate from the currently extremely popular 2.4GHz and 5GHz band.
This is also one of the reasons why this type of router can increase the transmission speed as much as possible. This frequency band can greatly increase the router’s expansion channel to solve the problem of the insufficient spectrum.
ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 has different speeds on different frequency bands. The highest speed can reach 1148 Mbps on 2.4 GHz and 4804 Mbps on the 5 GHz frequency band.
The maximum speed on the 6 GHz frequency band is also 4804M, but this router can be concurrent on different frequency bands, and the maximum concurrent speed can reach 11000 Mbps.
The device also supports the use of WAN aggregation connection speeds up to 2 Gbps and can use 2.5 Gbps WAN/LAN ports to provide gigabit wired network transmission.
As you know, the higher the frequency, the worse the penetration, so GT-AXE11000 has a 6 GHz amplifier, which can increase the signal strength and ensure network stability.
This device uses a 64-bit quad-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz with 1GB of memory. Although Asus did not say it, it is estimated to use Broadcom’s network chip.
