A few days ago, Asus began accepting pre-orders for a new Wi-Fi 6 router variant. The company is selling the Mobile Suit Gundam Special Edition router for the RT-AX82U and RT-AX86U models. Both devices come with a price tag of 1,199 Yuan (about 170 US Dollars) and 1,699 Yuan (about 242 US Dollars) respectively.
When you take a good look at the limited edition Wi-Fi 6 routers, you will notice that the RT-AX82U model looks just like the white, red, and blue color schemes of the popular and iconic Mobile Suit Gundam series. If you didn’t know, Gundam is an anime set in the distant future. The show features giant mechs (manned robots) engaging in battles.
The RT-AX86U, quite similar to the former, has a color scheme that fits the antagonist and it comes with WiFi 6. The RT-AX82U Wi-Fi router is powered by a multi-core processor which have posted high numbers and they have a peak bandwidth of 5,700Mbps. The router also comes with a 2.5G port as well as support for the latest Wi-Fi 6 standards. Other features of the router include AURA RGB gaming lighting effects. One downside, however, is that the company has only released these routers in a limited quantity of 500 units and will release them to the market on August 3.
