Here at CES, Buffalo have announced their AirStation WZR-1750H 802.11 ac router, a router capable of speeds up to 1300 Mbps, and we got to see the prototype in action.

As you can see from the photo above, at the moment the prototype is just a chipset on a board, but it works and was running perfectly well. Buffalo told me that it is likely to look like their current router hardware when it is released towards the later half of 2012.

During the live demo at CES, there was a screen showing the network speed. The camera caught it at 790.5 Mbps, but I saw it exceed 820 Mbs during the demo.

The theoretical maximum speed is 1300 Mbps, but Buffalo are quick to point out that those speeds are unlikely due to various factors.

There was a nice graph showing the speed of ac against the other wireless standards.

All in all this looks like a very fast router indeed, and we will bring you more information when it becomes available.
