丸いボディを8本のアンテナが囲う独特なデザインのWi-Fi 6無線ルーターASUS「RT-AX89X」発表!

ASUS has been introducing many high-spec products such as PCs, peripherals, and parts to the world.
ASUS is also well known as a manufacturer that is aggress ive in some way, such as its recent announcement of a collaborative model with the nationally popular "Mobile Suit Gundam" animation series.
While the specifications of the PC itself and the ease of use of its peripherals are important, what is often overlooked is the Wi-Fi wireless router.
As an important device that is both the entrance and exit to the Internet, the higher the specs, the faster and more stable the Wi-Fi environment will be.
ASUS routers are characterized not only by their high specs, but also by their unique and cool looks.
The " ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 " is also installed in the editorial office of funglr Games, and it is so cool that it makes us shiver.
Now, ASUS has a new addition to its line of Wi-Fi routers!
The "RT-AX89X," with its round body and eight antennas, has been announced!

A unique design that even looks adorable!

The first thing that stands out about the ASUS RT-AX89X is its appearance.


Many ASUS routers are square and angular, but the RT-AX89X has an octagonal body , almost like a circle.
The design of the "RT-AX89X" is almost a circle, with eight antennas surrounding it at equal intervals, making it look cute, unlike conventional routers that are more angular.
It is cute, like the Azzam from Gundam or the Tachikoma from Ghost in the Shell.
Although it looks small, it is quite large at 343 mm × 343 mm × 80 mm (W × D × H ), so make sure you have a place to set it up when you purchase it.

ASUS technology for stable, high-speed communication

The first thing that catches the eye is the design, but that is ASUS.
The high level of ASUS technology gives the "RT-AX89X" stable high-speed communication.
First of all, the CPU is a 2.2GHz quad-core CPU that exceeds desktop processors.
No matter how high the performance, it will not be possible if the specifications of the device cannot keep up.
The RT-AX89X is equipped with the specifications necessary to maximize the performance described below.

2.2 GHz quad-core CPU

Supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax ) standard.
This not only provides high-speed, stable communication, but also improves network efficiency and reduces battery consumption of connected devices, greatly improving the network environment.

You want to know how fast it is, though?
The RT-AX89X is equipped with 1024-QAM and provides high-speed communication speeds of up to 4804 M bps with 8 streams of 5 GHz communication and1148 Mbps with 4 streams of 2.4 GHz communication.
The 4804 Mbps speed on the 5 GHz band is 2.8 times faster than a typical 802.11ac 4x4 dual-band Wi-Fi router, so you can expect up to nearly three times faster speeds than the previous model!

Up to 4804 Mbps

While it's nice to have a fast wireless connection, we prefer to use a wired connection for our PCs, consoles, and other devices.
The RT-AX89X is equipped with eight Gigabit LAN ports.
Even with a PC, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch wired together, only half of the ports are still in use.
It's nice to have as many as eight ports, because it's safer to have plenty of ports to spare.

Eight Gigabit LAN ports

It has two 10G ports: a 10G LAN port and an SFP+ port.
The high speed and high capacity of these ports allow you to maximize Wi-Fi 6's high-speed wireless performance, as well as use it for data migration, NAS storage, and other applications as the situation demands.

Two 10G ports

The 802.11ax standard, which combines the latest technologies OFDMA and MU-MIMO, splits small sub-channels into each channel to bring together signals from multiple devices, resulting in up to four times more efficient traffic.
In addition, the bandwidth of the shorter sub-channels allows for a wider wireless connection of up to 80%, which means that a stable connection can be established even at some distance from the router.
AiRadar Beamforming, a high-performance antenna, provides a stable wireless signal for gaming, teleworking, and video viewing.

Up to 80% wireless coverage

Now and then, Internet security is a concern.
Especially nowadays when various procedures are available on the Internet, there is an abundance of information that should never be revealed to unauthorized persons, such as personal information and credit card numbers.
The RT-AX89X is equipped with business-grade security features that reduce the risk of important information being leaked.
AiProtection, which uses Trend Micro technology, blocks access to malicious websites on the Internet, intercepts unauthorized access, and blocks external communication from devices infected with viruses and other threats to protect devices and personal data from Internet threats. It protects devices and personal data from Internet threats.
Parental controls can also be used to restrict children's use of the Internet and applications.

Business-grade security

AiMesh, which connects multiple ASUS routers together to form a network, is of course supported.
The RT-AX89X can be combined with your current ASUS router to create a single, wide network that is stable and available anywhere in the house, no matter where you are or where you go.

AiMesh support

Release Date and Price

The ASUS RT-AX89X is scheduled to be released on Friday, February 5, 2021. It will be available at an open price.
The estimated market price is 54,780 yen (including tax).
First of all, the unique design tends to catch the eye, but once you see the performance, you will be convinced. It is a safe and reliable ASUS quality router.
As people spend more time at home, and spend more time connected to the Internet, both wired and wireless, a more comfortable network environment is the first step to a better life!
The ASUS RT-AX89X is a relatively high-end router, but its performance makes it a rather inexpensive router!
