If you think the Asus RT-AC3200 is overkill, you have no idea. The networking vendor announced today at IFA its latest router, the RT-AC5300, which has much higher Wi-Fi specs than its older brother.
Similar to the RT-AC3200, the RT-AC5300 is also a tri-band router. It has three Wi-Fi bands: one on the 2.4GHz band and two on 5GHz. However, as it has Broadcom's latest Wi-Fi chip, each of its bands has much higher bandwidth.
Specifically on the 2.4GHz band, the RT-AC5300 has a top Wi-Fi speed of up to 1,000Mbps, and on the 5GHz, each of the two bands has a top speed of 2,167Mbps. Combining those, the router has a total Wi-Fi bandwidth of some 5,300Mbps at any given time.
