Regarding third party firmware support, Realtek SoC support in OpenWrt
+ (success) RTL8196C port status. on the OpenWrt Forum
and the Realtek thread on the DD-WRT Forum may be of interest.

1300Mbps - 3SS 5GHz 802.11ac (80MHz chan.),
450Mbps - 3SS 2.4GHz 802.11n (40MHz chan.) = 1750 Mbps class
Product page
"Subscription costs $9.90 per month after the first year. Without the subscription, SENSE still functions as a powerful router."

Chip IDs are not legible in the FCC photos but the Realtek logo is visible on the CPU and some reviews also mention that it uses a Realtek chip. The product page says that the CPU is a 1 GHz dual-core. The four internal antennas shared by the two radios suggest that this device uses four transmit and receive chains but the AC1750 speeds imply only three spatial streams. These hints suggest that this device uses a RTL8198C CPU. Similar devices are using RTL8194AR and RTL8814AR radios so we'll guess that this device also uses those but does not have non-standard 256QAM enabled for 802.11n since it doesn't claim to be AC1900.
