Introduction

Wireless AC has brought a new level of wireless connectivity to the masses. With solutions ranging from 600Mbps AC600 to Dual-Band AC1900, Tri-Band AC3200 and Wave 2 AC2600 solutions. CES 2015 was an exciting time for the wireless networking industry as many vendors started to announce and show their Wave 2 solutions. One of these was rather interesting as ASRock has chosen to enter the market with its Mu-MIMO capable G10 Gaming router.

 

 

The G10 from ASRock is the first and possibly one of the most interesting releases to the market in 2015, as this router includes support for 800Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1.73Gbps on the 5GHz band. At the heart of this platform is the dual-core 1.4GHz processor from Qualcomm running next to 512MB of DRAM and 128MB of flash. In addition to these features, ASRock is the first to take things to the next level offering a product called the H2R in the package. The H2R that we will take a closer look at in an upcoming article is a 2x2 Travel Router with a 5v power input along with being an airplay capable HDMI solution.
