The TP-Link Archer AX50 AX3000 Wi-Fi 6 Router is a powerful tri-band Wi-Fi 6 gaming router that delivers impressive performance and bristles with features like multi-gig connectivity, robust parental controls, network security software, and game optimization tools.
The GX90 is a tri-band AX6600 router, which means that it can hit maximum data rates of up to 574Mbps on the 2.4GHz band, up to 1,201Mbps on one of the 5GHz bands, and up to 4,804Mbps on the second 5GHz band, for a total of 6,600Mbps. The second 5GHz band is designed for use as a dedicated channel to support critical gaming traffic.
The router is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, and it supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 technologies. These include 1024 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM), Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), 160MHz channel bandwidth, Target Wake Time, MU-MIMO data streaming, beam-forming, and WPA3 encryption. Moreover, you can create a seamless OneMesh whole home network when you pair it with compatible TP-Link OneMesh routers and range extenders.
The GX-90 can be managed using TP-Link’s Tether mobile app, or with a web console. Both are easy to use and offer a slick game-themed user interface, but the web console gives you more-granular controls. It also offers a handy gaming dashboard that lets you view things like network performance, attached USB devices, and connected clients, all from a single screen.
Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) could turn out to be the most significant advancement in Wi-Fi development, delivering a huge boost in speed and total capacity. Mainstream adoption of Wi-Fi 6 is inching ever closer with more and more AX clients available. It's the right time to upgrade your router to the newest generation of Wi-Fi!
There is no reason to hold off on buying a Wi-Fi 6 router when you can already take full advantage of the speed it delivers. Featuring a 160 MHz bandwidth and 1024-QAM, Archer AX50 delivers true gigabit speeds of up to 3 Gbps. Enjoy faster streaming and gaming like never before. Powered by Intel® Home Wi-Fi WAV654 chipset for a full-featured Wi-Fi 6 AX3000 router, to pair perfectly with new Intel® Wi-Fi 6 Gig+ PCs and laptops, allowing numerous bandwidth-intensive tasks to run smoothly at the same time.
In answer to ever growing demands on home Wi-Fi, Archer AX50 future-proofs your home networks by providing 4× greater capacity to connect more devices. Advanced technologies like OFDMA quadruple the connection capacity in high-density scenarios compared to standard 802.11ac routers. Keep pace with the latest technology and future developments.**
