No high end Asus routers released in a year!?

Do you have any estimation on what kind of difference if any the GT-AX6000 would have running OpenVPN with its 2.0ghz cpu compared to the 1.8ghz chip in the AX88U?
I assume it would be largely a linear performance gain since they are both using Cortex B53 cores.

No such thing as a Cortex-B53, it's just what Broadcom calls their Cortex-A53 chips. I doubt they made any architectural changes, unlike what Qualcomm does.

The antennas on the ROG Rapture GT-AX6000 seems to be detachable. Could be useful in a bridging scenario with an external antenna.

Why haven't Asus released any high end¹ routers since last autumn or so? The semiconductor problems? Are there any known upcoming devices?

¹ I'm referring to something that checks most of these boxes
* WiFi 6e
* 10 Gbps Ethernet
* AX11000
* USB 3.2 (USB-C?)
* 3x3
* WPA3
* Expensive :cool:
I must bump this thread. It is 1,5-2 years without any new high end router. Why why WHY!?!? Any official announcement from ASUS?

There's been hints at "Pro" versions of routers coming in the roadmap but I don't think they'll check all those boxes...

I'm personally waiting for the MerlinWRX Subaru Turbo Charger PRO Edition with Mirror Top Technology.

The GT-AXE16000 was released about a month ago. So, I'm not sure what you are talking about there, it can't get any higher end that this...
