Rearranged the title for it to fit better.

Looks like my 4 month old RT-AC68U AC1900 is already outdated redface.gif

Seems overkill for most applications but I still want it. My Asus RT-AC56U is starting to feel a bit inadequate next to these new quad antenna beasts.

Definitely looking forward to this, getting some aftermarket firmware on it and it will be a great box to own. Will upgrade from my Netgear R7000

I don't see the value in this. How many devices do you need to connect? Then, how many of those are AC? Then how many of those have more than one receiving antenna? Then how many of those devices need to talk to a router all at the same time? I don't have enough hands to run all that many devices at once. I feel that very few consumers can actually take advantage of this.

The top end flagship router are never meant to appeal by value. It is just there for people who got to have the latest and the best, plus there will be people with big houses or own apartments that find it useful.
