Huwat is this?!
So there are a lot of announcements coming out of Germany right now thanks to IFA 2015. While there have been a lot of new smartwatches, laptops, and even smartphones, this particular product by ASUS just jumped right out of our monitor and grabbed our attention. It’s their new RT-AC5300 Router and it just looks BEAST MODE through and through.
It’s a tri-band router and runs Broadcom’s latest wi-fi chip which gives all the bands higher bandwidth. It has 8 dual-band detachable antennas which makes it look like it came from outer space (lol). Full specifications below.
