Netgear launches Nighthawk X10 AD7200 Smart Wi-Fi router
On Wednesday, Netgear announced the launch of its new router --- the all-new Nighthawk X10 AD7200 Smart Wi-Fi router.
The new Nighthawk X10 router is priced at $500, and is now available for purchase in the US from local retail and online shops. The availability and pricing of the router in the UK and Australia are yet to be officially announced by Netgear.
The Nighthawk X10 AD7200 Smart Wi-Fi router is the second router on the market -- after the TP-Link Talon AD7200 router -- to boast support for the latest 802.11ad Wi-Fi standard which works on the 60GHz frequency band.
With the 802.11ad Wi-Fi standard supported on Nighthawk X10, the router has the capability to offer Wi-Fi speeds of up to 4.6Gbps. The mentioned speed, however, can be achieved by the router only at a short range of up to nearly 30 feet, and with a clear line of sight.
The Nighthawk X10 Smart Wi-Fi router is powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core processor with high-performance active antennas. It comes with several notable technical features including six Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, two USB 3.0 ports, automatic backup to the cloud with Amazon Drive, 10Gbps fiber port for super-fast connection to a supported NAS server, and MU-MIMO for concurrent streaming of data to multiple devices.
