Correct me if I'm wrong, there's no MU-MIMO device that can actually leverage on the faster speed offered by the AC-88 and AC-5300 yet right? If so, why the rush since it might be a year or two out before consumer devices start to integrate the chipset similar to how long it took before AC devices launched and become mainstream.
I think most of the buyers didn't buy them because of MU-MIMO (they're not the first routers which support MU-MIMO anyway). It's just new Asus fever.

That's true especially for those unfortunate souls who were hypnotized into getting the AC-87's which turned up to be a dud. Already learned my lesson from the similar AC-66 saga which has that horrendous flaky 5Ghz band problem.

Some ACER and MSI laptops have mu-mimo. Smartphones like Oneplus2, Xiaomi Mi 4i, Mi Note Pro etc also have it

Eventually should have support. Merlin doesn't have this model yet and the new alpha build only supports 88 and 3100 currently.
