USB-AX56 WiFi Adapter - How to Use Both Bands Simultaneously?

Recently I bought the USB-AX56 WiFi Dual Band AX1800 adapter and very happy with it. What I don't quite understand is that looks like ASUS states that this adapter can simultaneously work in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands when connected using WiFi 6 (so you can get 1200 Mbps + 574Mbps in total). Is it true that WiFi 6 can use both bands at the same time? And does anyone have experience with this configuration? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the answer! It also seemed suspicious to me that they indicate the total performance for the adapter, despite the fact that the adapter can only operate either at 2.4 or 5. Strange marketing decision!

Strange marketing decision!

All brands play the same marketing game. What do you think AX11000 routers are? The sum of maximum theoretical link speeds of all radios.
