Looks like an RT-AC5300 just mated with an older Lyra.

It's the best kept secret for almost like 10 months ago .... only a few handful are aware of this ... and finally it's announced.

I have been kept busy over these couple of months for debugging/testing on 10Gbps connection.

Do bear in mind, my unit is a prototype that comes with ASUS Aura Sync so i will not be naming this the actual SKU and specs which is similar to the ASUS RT-AX89X and it’s subjected to changes without prior notice. This is not the actual ASUS RT-AX89X.

Any performance results with the actual ASUS RT-AX89X will still embargoed until further instructions from ASUS TW HQ networking.

This router is going to be a paradise for Merlin's firmware!!! Sheesh!

Conflicted on if I should retire my GT-AX11000 altogether for this, or keep it as an AP?

Guess you will be out of luck ....

Merlin doesn't support any ASUS QCA based routers :( on his firmware.

ASUS RT-AX89X is using QCA IPQ8078 2.2GHz quad core CPU.

If we're lucky, he doesn't support it 'yet'. :)

I checked my Amazon cart and the AX88U is unavailable as new from Amazon (currently).
I checked if they offered RT-AX89X, for pre-order, but not currently found in Amazon database.
I was only looking for my disposable income friends here on the forum :D

Will be very very hard almost impossible ... so far there is only 2 ASUS official SKU that is based on Qualcomm IPQ - namely ASUS BRT-AC828 and this ASUS RT-AX89X

A couple of older models N series are Mediatek based CPU and almost all the AC models are Broadcom based.

And only the Blue Cave is Intel based :p

Keep your eyes on Newegg.com...they seem to come up with deals, especially at the end of summer/August. Make sure to signup for their daily sale emails and review each of them carefully as such offers are usually hidden among other ones.

There a few more, including the Lyra and Lyra Trio, and the RT-AC58U.

You are correct, thanks for reminding me :)

ASUS has way too many routers and networking peripherals these days to remember all. :eek:

Oh, those specs. I'm drooling. But what is that flat, blue cable in the one picture? Cat 7? Is that actually a thing now? I'm still rocking 5e or Cat 6. Oh, my wallet would die for this.

Yes, these are CAT 7 LAN cables.



There are even CAT 8 ones too.



In your case, it should able to suffice if only covering short distances ;)

In case you are wondering what switches i'm using.

I'm using the QNAP QSW-1208-8C non-managed 10G Ethernet/SFP+ switch with multiple based-T support currently which i still have those smart/managed switches tho.

I was not told by whomsoever in ASUS of any such information.
