802.11ax or Wi-Fi 6 standard is slowly supported by mainstream manufacturers to provide next generation wireless network performance over existing 802.11 ac (Wi-Fi 5), such as the latest Samsung Galaxy S10. Netgear, a well-known networking equipment company, is expanding its lineup with the new Nighthawk Tri-band AX12 router for $599.99 USD (MSRP).

The Tri-band AX12 or codenamed RAX200 is the third Wi-Fi 6 compatible router from Netgear, after the AX8 (RAX80) and Dual-band AX12 (RAX120). The router will be using a total of twelve streams and three bands (2x 2.4 GHz + 1x 5 GHz) to transfer data, with a combined bandwidth of 10.8 Gbps. It is equipped with a 1.8 GHz quad-core processor to handle all the traffic.

The router does not skim on the wired connection either. It includes five gigabit Ethernet ports with support for link aggregation, as well as an additional 2.5 Gbps Ethernet port for high-bandwidth device.

The RAX200 router will be on sale in May 2019 for $599.99 USD (MSRP), and currently available for pre-order. You can get the RAX80 and RAX120 routers for cheaper, but with slower 6 Gbps overall speed, at $399.99 USD (MSRP) and $499.99 USD (MSRP) respectively.
