asus super router

Asus has unveiled a new router that it claims is the fastest in the world, capable of Wi-Fi speeds up to 5334Mbps.

The device has attracted attention for its unique design, which resembles a spider on its back, but has equally generated interest due to the claim that the router - known as the RT-AC5300U 802.11ac - is the fastest on the planet.

Unveiled at IFA 2015, Asus said the tri-band router operates on 2.4 GHz and dual 5 GHz frequencies and is capable of speeds of up to 1Gbps on the 2.4 GHz band and 2.167 Gbps on each 5 GHz band, for a potential total of 5.3 Gbps.

The device itself contains the newest Broadcom Wi-Fi chip, with its eight antennas helping to bring about improved Wi-Fi range and signal stability, reaching up to 500 square meters.

The router is set to be released by the end of the year, firstly in the US, where the retail price will be around the $400 mark.
