The OEM hints that it might be the perfect home network upgrade to go with one of the new flagships, as it supports NFC for easy set-up and pairing with compatible devices.
The user needs to fit their handset between two of the new 10 Gigabit Router's four 'spikes', which house 12 individual antennae for enhanced gain and "whole-house" range.
Xiaomi says that there is an unnamed "enterprise-grade" Qualcomm chipset under the bonnet which has four ARM Cortex-A73 cores and 2GB of RAM.
Accordingly, Xiaomi claims its new router is ready to split a fibre-optic cable's input between 4 2.5GB ports for an up to "dual LAN and dual WAN" network. It can do so with a choice between a 10Gb RJ-45 or a 10Gb SFP+ port.
Xiaomi estimates that the router might also emit up to 10Gb of "wireless" speed, with its 4x4 2.4GHz (at up to megabits per second (1,376.4Mb/s)), 5GHz (at up to 5764.8 Mb/s) and 5.8GHz (at up to 2882.4 Mb/s) band support (on paper, at least).
The new 10 Gigabit Router can now be pre-ordered from Xiaomi for US$258.
