I think the new routers are becoming a little ridiculous liao. AC3200 really??? Do you have so many 5Ghz users in a single enclosed space??? And the routers are all getting larger with more power consumption too, it will just end up as a mini PC in future.

On the contrary, current routers these days are evolving in tandem on how one uses Internet as compare to the older days, more WiFi devices are been used @ home, printers connected to the router for networking printing, portable hard disks are connected for downloads and BT, VPN back to office, remote access back to own network, miniDLNA working in the background and the list goes on.

On top of that, some users still want to be connected and download @ the highest possible speed via WiFi.

Is there 4x4 wireless adapters already? Defeat the purpose if I have to use LAN.

Ok so we just need a 3x3 AC adapter?

Some thoughts from RMerlin

So is AC2300 dead now since AC3200 has been mentioned?
The two devices are quite different. AC3200/AC2300 does not tell the whole story.

For starter, the RT-AC87U will be able to provide up to 1700 Mbps to a single device, while the RT-AC3200 will only be able to provide up to 1200 Mbps to a single device.

So, if you only have one or two 802.11ac devices and need the maximum performance out of them, the RT-AC87U will remain a faster router (provided you have matching NICs, that is).
wah liaos that router looks very fierce... but need to have wlan card that supports that speed?
6 antennas is damn fierce~ But yea, looks like you need a wlan card that can support that speed.
Nope, you can use back your usual 5GHz WiFi 2T2R/3T3R adapter with ASUS AC3200.

As for ASUS RT-AC87U, you will be needing a 4T4R WiFi adapter if you are planning to run @ 1700Mbps. See quoted on RMerlin's post.

4x4 wireless adapter is not out yet, expecting to come out when the ASUS RT-AC87U is released.
