A few days ago, the first Xiaomi WiFi 6 Router AX3600 was officially released, priced at 599 yuan ($86). JD.com has opened an appointment and it will be available for purchase on March 5.
However, many are asking why is this router named AX3600? In this regard, Lei Jun said on Weibo that the person in charge of the router explained as follows:
- AX refers to ax in the 802.11ax (WiFi6) protocol.
- 3600, according to industry rules, refers to the theoretical maximum rate of the router. These 7 antennas include 2 2.4GHz antennas and 4 5GHz antennas. The theoretical maximum rate of 2.4GHz is 574Mbps, and the theoretical maximum rate of 5GHz is 2402Mbps, which adds up to 2976Mhz. Add 1 AIoT antenna, which supports 2.4GHz / 5GHz dual frequency, the theoretical maximum rate is 150Mbps + 433Mbps. The final total is 3559Mbps.
According to IT House, the theoretical dual-band simultaneous wireless speed of the AX3600 is as high as 2976Mbps, which is 155% higher than the previous generation Wi-Fi 5 AC1200 router. The 2.4GHz frequency band has longer transmission distance, better coverage, and better wall penetration performance. The 5GHz frequency band has less interference and high speed, making watching HD videos and playing large-scale online games smoother.
Xiaomi WiFi 6 Router AX3600 Features
The AX3600 router comes with an IPQ8071A chip, which comes with 6 cores, a 64-bit 4-core 1GHz CPU and a dual-core 1.7GHz NPU (network acceleration processor).
The company said that the 64-bit 4-core CPU has a DMIPS value of 9200, and the dual-core 1.7GHz NPU can effectively reduce the delay of data forwarding and ensure a smooth experience with low latency for the game.
The 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands of the WiFi 6 Router AX3600 has two and four external high-performance signal amplifiers (PA + LNA), respectively. PA (Power Amplifier) effectively enhances signal transmission power, and LNA (Low Noise Amplifier) can improve signal receiving sensitivity. The signal transmission distance is longer and the wall is stronger.
The Xiaomi WiFi 6 Router AX3600 sports 512MB of memory and can support up to 248 devices connected at the same time. AIoT exclusive antenna, with 600M independent dual-band Wi-Fi chip, automatically discovers Xiaomi smart devices that are not initialized around. Apart from this, the AX3600 also sports a built-in NetEase UU accelerator global dedicated line interconnection to accelerate mainstream global games with low latency and more stability. It supports PS4, Switch, and Xbox One gaming platforms to accelerate.anten
