The crew at Legit Reviews had a lot of nice things to say about the ASUS RT-AC3200 they just reviewed. If you are wireless router shopping, this review should be of interest to you.

As part of their Extreme Series, ASUS has released their RT-AC3200 Tri-Band 802.11ac router that features one of the fastest data rate combinations of any router on the market today. With a theoretical top speed of 3200 Mbps, the ASUS RT-AC3200 uses two 802.11ac networks (5.0 GHz and 2.4 GHz) with three transmitters a piece for a 3x3 antenna configuration.

What's confusing me about Asus's offerings, is that the newer/faster the model, the less well it performs (even with newer firmware updates this appears to be the case)?

I mean, I'm all set to get the 87u at this point, but even it's glowing reviews imply the 68u still can outperform it, is this also true for the AC3200 model (which seems to not have a similar naming convention)?
