During the holiday month, the manufacturers of communications products did not rest on their laurels and announced a number of new routers.
The new version, called WRT1900ACS, Identical to the previous model externally and all the changes in it are in the internal structure. In the picture below you can see the old model (top) compared to the new model (bottom).
The WRT1900ACS is based on a faster processor running at 1.6Ghz (compared with 1.2Ghz) in the previous model and includes twice the amount of memory RAM - 512MB.
In addition, the 4 cm diameter internal fan that characterized the previous model has disappeared in the new version, a fact that makes the new router quieter.
The wireless features of the WRT1900ACS are identical to those of the previous model and so are the features and functionality of its firmware.
The official price of the new model is $ 250 but it is already available in Amazon at a cost of $ 230. In the coming weeks, and until the WRT1900AC runs out of stock, the two models will sell at the same time, with the cost of the old model being about $ 50 lower.
