WiFi 6E devices to operate on the 6 GHz band, rather than just the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. This will provide users a massive boost in bandwidth and speed.

Seriously, I expect better from Tom's Hardware...

A clue as to how Asus may leverage WiFi 6e for an AiMesh dedicated wireless backhaul:

"A Wi-Fi network is only as good as its weakest signal, which is why we’ve given the ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 AiMesh support. Using AiMesh, you can connect other compatible ASUS routers to extend range and boost performance in the far-flung corners of houses or buildings. The GT-AXE11000 will automatically monitor the signal strength of the 5GHz and 6GHz bands and choose the one that’s best suited to use as a backhaul."

@RMerlin I agree. But there is nothing else I can find on the 'net right now about AX210...

I don't give trust easily, online, eBay is not an option at all for me.

Newegg USA sells a "desktop kit" for it. Imported from China, but still seemed reasonably priced for anyone in a hurry to get a wifi adapter without any router supporting it yet :)

With WiFi-6E, it's still very early, and with the 6E extensions, there's the requirement for infrastructure to support it, which presently doesn't exist in any meaningful way.
