Razer is no stranger to wireless networking, in mid-2017 they teamed up with Ignition Design Labs to create the Portal Mesh system. This was an AC2400 class platform that took advantage of DFS channels dubbed ZWDFS or FastLanes as Razer calls them, to push past typical network congestion in heavily populated areas.
That technology has seemingly made its way into their second wireless router platform, Sila. This new platform is an AC3000 class solution, again with mesh technology built in offering 400Mbps on the 2.4GHz band, 867Mbps on the 5GHz band and dedicated 1733Mbps band for backhaul between mesh nodes. Additional technology includes MU-MIMO, 256QAM, and Bluetooth.
At the heart of this new platform is the Qualcomm IPQ4019, a four core 700MHz SoC that includes a 2:2 radio and ethernet controller which is then paired to the 8075 Switch and secondary QCA8075 4:4 Radio. Memory comes in at 512MB while flash is 256MB. As mentioned, Razer is still pushing additional DFS channels with this new platform along with new FasTrack Engine for gaming prioritization.
MSRP of the Razer Sila comes in at $249.99 with a one-year warranty.
