Asus has unveiled what it claims to be a wireless router with the “world’s fastest Wi-Fi” connection at Germany’s IFA show. The RT-AC5300 takes its cue from the RT-AC3200 in using a large number of antennas, with this router using a total of eight detachable dual-band along all four main edges of the device to help it achieve speeds of up to 5.3Gbps over Wi-Fi, using both 2.4GHz and 5Ghz bands.

Using 2.4GHz bands, it can reach a speed of up to 1Gbps, while two 5Ghz bands each provide 2.17Gbps speeds. When used with a device capable of combining the bands together, it is capable of the figurehead 5.3Gbps speed. It also includes a gigabit WAN connection, and four gigabit ethernet ports for the local wired network.

While it does include USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 connections, allowing it to provide network connectivity to an external hard drive or printer, users are also able to attached a 3G or 4G wireless dongle, in the event the main Internet connection goes down and a back-up is required.

Asus is planning to ship the RT-AC5300 before the end of this year, though pricing has not yet been confirmed.
