With the massive popularity that Wi-Fi Internet is gaining these days, it’s no wonder that companies are trying to come up with new and better wireless routers every day. One company that is well versed in putting together a top notch Wi-Fi router is NetGear, which just announced a brand new router that has been dubbed Nighthawk. The Nighthawk AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi router is billed as one that will “soar” above the competition with the world’s fastest Gigabit Internet speed.
This particular router has a 1GHz dual core processor and a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port. The device also comes with the patented NetGear Bramforming+ that will help users boost speed, reliability and range in their homes. While there has been quite a bit of talk about the access people are getting to Wi-Fi networks when they are just out and about, a home network is still the way to go for most Web surfers.
The newest Nighthawk router has speeds up to AC1900 Wi-Fi (600+1300 Mbps) and that makes it the exact kind of router that people who do an awful lot of streaming video and gaming would want to use. The device comes packed with a high-power Wi-Fi amplifier and three external antennas. That means that someone anywhere in the house should have full access to blazing speeds.
"NETGEAR designed Nighthawk to be the best Wi-Fi router in the world today, bar none. Our goal was to make the best router for data-intensive activities such as online gaming and video streaming,” said Sandeep Harpalani, NETGEAR director of product marketing for Core Networking in a recent release. "We've listened to the demands of high bandwidth users and packed Nighthawk with features to surpass their expectations for speed, range, sharing, reliability, ease of use and security, the must-haves for enabling an increasingly connected digital lifestyle. Simply put, Nighthawk is for anyone who wants the best.”
Among the added features that NetGear thinks makes this router the top of its line, is that the USB 3.0 ports bring additional speed when compared to the traditional USB 2.0 versions. Using these new ports, content in a USB drive can be accessed and transmitted across the network about 10 times faster than using the 2.0 version.
