    Yeah, likely Qualcomm IPQ8074/IPQ8078 (but it could be Marvell). It looks like it's 8x8 unless it's operating with 80+80MHz channel bandwidths at which point it drops down to 4x4. I believe that this is still a dual-band 802.11ax device so since it doesn't support 8x8 HE160/HE80+80 it's probably still "AX6000 class." Netgear may be testing a Broadcom design as the Jaguar and a Qualcomm design as the Leopard. Perhaps these two are vying for the title of Nighthawk X12 or if they add DFS support and that allows 8x8 operation with 160MHz channels then this could end up being sold as a step above the Nighthawk X12.

    Ooh, ok yeah I guess I missed the HT160 part. True if it was QCA, it probably would have HT160 in 4X mode in addition to the 4X+4X ability on 5Gh. May even be Quantenna then to add an other possible vendor into the guess mix but more likely Broadcom as you said.

    Test reports show 5 GHz transfer rate "up to 4804 Mbps", which indicates four stream.

    This table shows 8x8 design, but only 11ax HE80 with 8 streams.

    Here's the product label. 5 GEth port is likely WAN.
