    TP-Link's three new Wi-Fi 6 Deco X90, Deco X60 and Deco X20 Mesh Wi-Fi systems all support seamless roaming, self-healing and adaptive routing.

    All three kits also support OFDMA, DL/UL MU-MIMO, and WPA3 and are managed through the Deco mobile app. Customers can also use Amazon Alexa to control the Deco’s guest Wi-Fi network feature and optionally subscribe to TP-Link’s new HomeCare Pro by Avira service. HomeCare Pro adds antivirus, IOT security and parental control features; each new Deco includes a limited time free trial.

    The Deco X90 is an AX6600 tri-band two-node kit, supporting maximum wireless rates of 574Mbps @ 2.4GHz and 1201Mbps @ 5GHz on its dual-stream radios and 4804Mbps @ 5GHz on the second 5 GHz four-stream radio. TP-Link says the Deco 9 can provide 6000 square feet of coverage and support up to 200 devices. The Deco X90 system also includes a 2.5 Gbps WAN port to support connection to Gigabit internet services.

    The Deco X60 is an AX3000 dual-band, dual-stream two-node kit, supporting maximum wireless rates of 574 Mbps @ 2.4GHz and 2402 Mbps @ 5GHz. The Deco X60's coverage area is spec'd at 5000 square feet and supports more than 150 devices.

    Lastly, the budget-conscious AX1800 Deco X20 is available as a two-node and three-node kit. Another dual-band, dual-stream solution, the X20 has maximum wireless rates of 574 Mbps @ 2.4GHz and 1201 Mbps @5GHz.

    The Deco X90 ($449.99) is expected to be available in April 2020, while the Deco X60 ($269.99) and Deco X20 ($189.99 for two-node kit and $269.99 three-node kit) will be out in March 2020.

    Is it a 2x2 system on both bands or only 2x at 2.4GHz band and 4x4 on 4GHz band?

    Dual-band products are 2 stream both bands. Tri band product is four stream on one 5 GHz radio only. Like original Orbi.
