Netgear’s first WiFi 6 routers look like stealth fighters

Netgear is very clearly determined to maintain its reputation for outlandishly styled, high-performance WiFi routers. The company has unveiled its first routers using the WiFi 6 (aka 802.11ax) standard, and… well, just look at them. Both the Nighthawk AX8 and Nighthawk AX12more closely resemble stealth fighters than networking equipment (to better position the antennas, Netgear said), and they appear to have the speed to match. Both can handle up to 6Gbps of wireless data traffic at any one time, tout “optimized” quad-core processors to juggle all that traffic and promise 25 percent higher data efficiency thanks to 1024 QAM. They’re ready for your eventual multi-gigabit cable or fiber connection, then, and could be helpful if you’re regularly transferring massive files between devices.
