I think asus has changed the 5GHZ chipset. Away Form QNT

On the asus Homepage there is no information of
QTN and wave 2.

All RT-AC87U revisions use a Quantenna chip for the 5 GHz band.

I wish I knew about the A2 version availability. I could have replaced my A1 router last year. Not possible anymore as it's now OOW... sigh.
