As we had anticipated, throughout the morning Xiaomi has presented its first gaming router. A new model called Mi Router AC2100 that in addition to having features capable of improving connectivity and latency, is capable of reaching a transmission speed of up to 2100Mbps.
Unlike the rest of the models, this new gaming router arrives with a completely renewed design, adding around the body allowing it to accommodate various 360º signal antennas inside. Its diameter is 120mm, while its height is 213mm all in a fairly minimalist design in black that reminds us of the Apple Mac Pro of the previous generation.
Inside we find a powerful two-core and four-wire processor capable of managing processes at a speed of 880MHz in combination with a memory of 128MB. It also has dual-band support, combining the traditional 2.4GHz band with the 5GHz band to achieve a promised 2100Mbps.
Its coverage antennas are arranged inside, covering a total angle of 360º. This improves coverage in any direction, also offering a wide range for the 2.4GHz band of up to 100 meters. For its part, the 5GHz band supports 4 × 4 MU-MIMO technology, thus allowing simultaneous communication with several devices wirelessly.
As if that were not enough, Xiaomi Mi Router AC2100 has Beam Forming, a new technology capable of automatically detecting the location of connected devices in order to intensify the signal in the direction of where each of these is.
On the outside, we find two status LEDs in blue / seawater, as well as a rear switch with a total of 4 Gigabit sockets. It should be noted that this router is of the neutral type, so it does not have a modem with which to convert an input signal of the ADSL / Fiber type.
This new Xiaomi Mi Router AC2100 will go on sale next September 20 starting at a price of only 229 yuan (about $32). Even so, it is not expected that it will go on sale beyond the Chinese borders.
