Introduction

The RT-AC68U is likely one of the best-selling ASUS routers of all time. It has undergone many hardware revisions over the years, but perhaps the largest is the latest, which sees it taking on the RT-AC1900 model name, with a few revisions itself. The RT-AC1900p we have in house is a Best Buy exclusive just as the RT-AC68P was.

 

 

While each of these solutions fit into the AC1900 class with a capable 600Mbps 2.4GHz band and 1300Mbps 5GHz band, on the hardware side, there are small differences that should show a discernable performance edge for the 1900p.

 

To start, ASUS has doubled the amount of flash to 256MB. Memory sits at 256MB as well while the CPU was swapped from the BCM4708 to the BCM4709 with an uptick in clock speed from 1GHz in all previous models to 1.4GHz in the 1900p.

 

Power amps on the 5GHz band were changed from SkyWorks 5023L to 5003L1 while additional shielding was added to the USB 3.0 which should aid in improved performance for storage. Let's see how it does.
