At its mega launch event, Xiaomi also unveiled AX9000, the company’s new top-end Wi-Fi 6 router after it introduced the AX6000 model last year. It supports up to 9000Mbps combined wireless transmission speed, maximum theoretical download speed can reach 3.5Gbps, and a 5GHz frequency band can be completely reserved for e-sports use, avoiding bandwidth competition with other applications.

The router features USB 3.0, 2500Mbps Ethernet port, supports mesh networking, Xiaomi Share, and more. The AX9000 can also be combined with other Xiaomi Wi-Fi 6 series routers (AX1800, AX3600 and AX6000) for Mesh networking to expand the coverage area.
