hmm.. now caught in 2 minds of 2 AC87U, or 1 AC87U and 1 EA-AC87 for 5Ghz wireless media bridge at around 900Mbps rate.
Rather you get 2x ASUS RT-AC87U and can use it now lor ...

And can easier to resell both or individually when the time comes for the next generation BCM quad core, ASUS 4x4 more spatial streams (160MHz) routers or even the ASUS ROG 10GbE router

Do note media bridging works fine between 2x ASUS RT-AC87U but the link rate might fluctuates quite a bit in the mean time. resulting not up to par 5GHz performance.

Nevertheless ASUS are devoting their resources in fine tuning the 5GHz performance and others.

As for EA-87U, there isn't any estimated ETA and final design and specifications might change.
