Would some of the features be coming to RT88U?
Maybe some of the new features are able to port over to the ASUS RT-AC88U or cannot as I still don't have the finalised ASUS BRT-AC828M2 feature list and interoperability. It's all in the hands of the ASUS TW BRT-AC828M2 team.

Some of the new features already undergoing testing and compatibility test.

Just stay tuned when i have the green light to reveal more.

Guess the smaller cat is out of the bag as well

Introducing the smaller sibling ASUS BRT-AC414 router

ASUS BRT-AC414



ASUS BRT-AC828M2



ASUS shows the BRT AC414 and AC828 / M2 two new routers for business (SMB) operation at Computex. The main feature of these new devices is formed by the presence of two gigabit WAN ports. These can be used as a fail-over, so that when one fails, the other takes over it, but also for applications VLAN.

Both routers support the 802.11a / b / g / n / c standard and are also equipped with USB 2.0 and 3.0. The BRT AC828 / M2, the top model is equipped with a 4x4 antenna design, a built-in 8-port switch and an M.2 SSD card slot. The BRT AC414 has to do with the 2x2 antenna design and an integrated 4-port switch.

The new ASUS routers are expected on the market in coming months.

No, the CPU is not BCM4908 (quad core 1.8GHz 64bit ARM CPU).

It's currently still at sampling and development phase i think.

We might able to see new routers announcement based on BCM4908 in Q4/Q1 2017?

Got the ASUS TW's go ahead to reveal the official specs ....

This is the first ASUS networking router based on QCA (QualComm Atheros) latest networking solutions.

~ Specs as follows ~

1). CPU ~ QCA IPQ8065 1.7GHz dual core Krait 300 CPU
2). WiFi ~ 2x QCA9984 4X4:4 Wave2 MU-MIMO 160MHz for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz (80MHz+80MHz)
(Specs is ready but 160 drivers are not ready yet)
3). LAN Switch ~ (LAN:1 x RLT8370MB + WAN: 2 x QCA8033)
4). Fully hardware NAT dual WAN for Internet speeds up to 2Gbps with 8x real backbone GbE LAN ports (Realtek RTL8370MB 8 ports) with 2x set of bonding ports



5). Dedicated QCA HW AES/3DES/SHA crypto accelerator engine.
6). 128MB Flash
7). 512MB DDR3 RAM
8). 2 x USB 3.0 (with eject button)
9). Support Failover, Teaming (aggregation) on SLA (Static Link Aggregation), 802.3ad Aggregation
10). Support SATA/AHCI M.2 SSD up to the current biggest 500GB size available in the market - Samsung Evo 850 500GB M.2 SSD (Do note - M.2 NVME based SSD are not supported)



Just to illustrate why is this ASUS BRT-AC828M2 is fully dual WAN 1Gbps capable up to 2Gbps and hardware NAT router.

One picture is worth more than a thousand words



Do note the SpeedTest is to show that this ASUS BRT-AC828M2 is more capable to achieve this kind of performance rating with ease and fully NAT HW accelerated barely with any CPU loading.

All the other aspects of the performance indicators (WiFi, OpenVPN, IPSec, USB3.0, M.2 SSD etc) are still in embargo @ ASUS TW discretion.

Lastly, many thanks to ViewQwest and ASUS TW's BRT-AC828M2 team for allowing me to contribute to this particular collaboration.
