The new ASUS RT-AC68U is being touted as the first dual-band 802.11ac router with AC1900 data rates up to 1900Mbps. This performance can be attributed to AiRadar Beamforming technology, which helps establish a stronger connections and produce 250 percent better range.

 

ASUS says that you will also build a file share between other ASUS routers via attached USB drives with no need for a PC or other device handling the transfer. At the time of publishing, there is no word on pricing or availability, but previous ASUS flagship routers ran in the $200 range and it would be safe to expect the RT-AC68U to be near that as well.
