The new Synology router (RT2600AC) revealed

We’ve been hearing murmurs about a new Synology router for some time, but it looks as if the device is nearing release.

The follow up to last year’s well-received AC1900 device has just passed FCC testing and the government agency has kindly published photos and device specifications.

The RT2600AC is a dual band AC2600 device, powered by a dual-core 1.7 Ghz Qualcomm IPQ8065 SoC.

It’ll feature four external (removable) antennas, with the traditional five Gigabit Ethernet ports, twin USB ports as well as an SD card slot. The LAN slots can dedicated in two mode: one WAN with four LAN ports or alternatively, two WAN with three LAN ports. Speeds are promised up to 1.73 Gbps on the 5 GHz band and up to 800 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz 802.11n band.

Full specifications as follows:

At this point, there’s no word on pricing or release date, but now that the device has passed FCC approval, it can’t be too far away.
