The Nighthawk X10 Smart Wi-Fi router combines a 1.7 GHz Quad Core processor—the fastest processor in a home router—and Quad-Stream Wave 2 Wi-Fi architecture plus next-generation high-speed 802.11ad Wi-Fi, supporting wireless speeds up to 7.2 Gbps. The latest MU-MIMO technology supports simultaneous streaming, while 160 MHz doubles Wi-Fi speeds to mobile devices. Four patent-pending external Active Antennas amplify Nighthawk X10 Wi-Fi signals to maximize range and throughput.
The Nighthawk X10 supports Plex Media Server with transcoding for ultra-smooth 4K streaming, even to remote devices. The Nighthawk X10 is the industry’s first router to run Plex Media Server without the need for a computer. Compared to storing video content on a PC, Plex Media Server with Nighthawk X10 Smart Wi-Fi router is easy to set up and is always on.
NETGEAR® Nighthawk X10 is also reportedly the industry’s first router designed for the home market that includes a 10 Gigabit port, which supports a fiber connection. The router has a 10 Gigabit fiber port that offers very fast backup and streaming from Network Attached Storage devices, suiting it for personal HD video collections. The two USB 3.0 ports make it easy to add storage for backup and file transfer over Wi-Fi.
The router is list priced at $499.99.
