    It looks like Spectrum (Charter) cable is readying a 4x4 802.11ax wireless router to provide to certain customers who choose to pay a monthly fee for Wi-Fi.

    WikiDevi has the hardware details and a copy of the internal board photo from the FCC filings.

    CPU: Qualcomm IPQ8072 (2 GHz, 4 cores)
    LAN: 4x 1 GbE
    WAN: 1x 2.5 GbE (Aquantia AQR109)

    I was under the impression that the IPQ8072 did not require discrete radio chips but it looks like a Qualcomm QCN5054 handles 5 GHz and a Qualcomm QCN5024 handles 2.4 GHz.

    The IPQ8072 and IPQ8074 were previously announced in press releases but an IPQ8078 has also been mentioned recently and it appears to be clocked a bit higher than the IPQ8074 but otherwise very similar. QCN5154+QCN5124 radios appear to go along with the IPQ8074 and IPQ8078 CPUs.
