Breaking the trend of crazy-looking mothership or spider routers is Netgear, releasing it's Nighthawk X8 AC53000 Wi-Fi router that looks extremely... normal.




Packing a 1.4GHz dual-core processor within, this reserved router boasts Wi-Fi speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps through it's three Wi-Fi band capabilities, six Gigabit Ethernet ports and the ability for more than 12 devices to be connected to the wireless network at once. The 5.3 Gbps transfer speeds is something that Netgear claims is "a new record for a home router."


In total, the record-breaking Wi-Fi speeds are made up of 1000 Mbps + 2166 Mbps + 2166 Mbps connections, allowing for blisteringly-fast networking for home use applications. While the router looks extremely normal, the price is not - expect to spend around $400 on this crazy piece of technology. As much as the price might hurt the wallet, you're really getting what you pay for here.
