4620Mbps - 1SS 60GHz 802.11ad (MCS12/16-QAM (3/4)),
1733Mbps - 4SS 5GHz 802.11ac (80MHz chan.),
600Mbps - 4SS 2.4GHz 802.11n (40MHz chan.) = 7000 Mbps class

Product page  • Support page

Most of the information on this page was copied from the Netgear R9000 since the FCC ID is the same.
This router appears to be a feature-limited R9000 exclusively for Costco like the Netgear AC1450 was.
The only obvious change from the R9000 to this R8900 is the lack of non-standard 256-QAM support

for 2.4GHz 802.11n which reduces the maximum theoretical speed from 800Mbps to 600 Mbps.

Product features[edit]

  • X10 is industry’s fasted router for media streaming with Plex media server.
  • X10 with 802.11ac/ad Wi-Fi technology delivers ultra-smooth 4K streaming,
VR gaming and instant downloads.
  • With a powerful 1.7GHz Quad-core processor, 60GHz 11ad, and Quad-stream
architecture, you can enjoy combined wireless speeds of up to 7.2Gbps.
  • MU-MIMO supports simultaneous streaming, while 160 MHz doubles
WiFi speeds to mobile devices.
  • Four patent pending external active antennas amplify WiFi signals
to maximize range and throughput.
