Product Page | ASUS News piece

The ASUS logo, "PCE-AC66", and "REV: 1.40" is silkscreened on the board in the FCC photos.

The device is also pictured with an extremely large heatsink in these photos.

This card is 3x3:3 for both 802.11ac (max. 1300Mbps PHY rate) and 2.4GHz/5GHz 802.11n (max. 450Mbps PHY rate).

The internal Arcadyan model name for the device appears to be WN8222BAC-ASU (or maybe WN6222BAC-ASU).

and the ASUS PCE-AC68)
  • 14e4:43a1
  • 14e4:43a2
  • 14e4:43b1 (passys states that this is the ID.. but it seems
to be used by the BCM4352 based ASUS PCE-AC56)
