Linksys’ new WRT32X AC3200 router looks similar to the WRT3200, but it is entirely black. This new router has a dual-core processor with a 1.8 GHz frequency, 512MB of DDR3 memory, and 256MB of flash memory for its OS.
Its Wi-Fi features are also the best on the market, with dual-band at 5 GHz (802.11ac) and a single band at 2.4 GHz that provide a bandwidth of up to 3,200 Mbps together. It has a 3×3 MU-MIMO configuration with two antennas dedicated to 2.4 GHz.
It has a Gigabit switch with four LAN ports and a WAN port with a NAT throughput of about 900 Mbps, allowing it to have Internet access compatible with any current or mid-term connection. It also has two ports, one of them being a USB 3.0 port for connecting hard drives and for sharing files or downloads.
The router is specifically optimized to work along with systems featuring Killer wireless/wired network adapters, where we can combine Wi-Fi and LAN to significantly increase bandwidth, but it is perfectly compatible with any other device on the market that supports its standards. The launch price is around 300$, a fairly usual price for this type of high-end routers.
