    well... I'm not certain.
    Perhaps asus realized that 1GB is a bit of an overkill for a router with just 600MHz cpu... Yet 128 is just plain old RT-N16 style and they notched it up to 256MB.
    imho 256MB is still quite a lot for a router. I'm running so much on my rt-n16 yet I only manage to fill up 128MB of ram with a little on the swap.

    Yeah 256MB it's quite alot like you said but i think we all prefeer 1GB.

    Concerning the 600Mhz of the router, i just hope we can have a good improvement on the USB ports (transfer rate) over RT-N16, cause it's the same MIPS74K arquitecture, and i really don't know if 120MHZ are gonna make so much difference.

    The router has 1GB RAM DDR2 according to ASUS, that's why im in doubt :-D

    True, I'd say you should expect a nice 9-10MB/s transfer speed with samba3
    that's my guesstimate

    Updated release date?

    Hi everyone,

    If I'm not wrong, Q3 2011 seems to be the most accurate release date posted in this thread... September is getting closer and I wonder if anyone has updated information about this release.

    Thanks a lot,

    M

    Any updates for the router status/price/availability?

  6. #36
    Retailers in Europe point to October and price of 150€ plus taxes.

    Again a new look?

    looks like 200-ish MB RAM is printed on the specs card.

    also some older news I've read: http://translate.google.nl/translate...t-streamengine

    I'm sort of... confused
    they say the rt-n66u is not going to be released in europe because it won't stand out among the competition...
    instead they will be building the rt-n57u for european markets with usb 3.0
    why usb3.0? current routers hardly reach 10MB/s on some protocols

    If you zoom in more, you can see that it can't be 200ish mb as there are only 3 characters. I don't think they would write down 200...200 what? First is a 2, then comes a G...then B/b. I believe this is actually 2GB of DDR2 ram.

    November

    Asus Germany reply that RT-N66U will be available in November... They also send me a German datasheet, you can see it here:

    ASUS announced a product with 1GB RAM and releases it with 3 times less. That's really awesome, not!

    Or maybe they're going release 2 products:

    RT-N66U => 256MB
    RT-N66U Dark Knight => 1GB

    Who knows?

    wait a second... omega, in the Russian thread, you posted this: http://wl500g.info/showpost.php?p=237534&postcount=38
    do you mean there is a stylish "black diamond" and a ROG gamers version of the rt-n66u?

    So...
    Maybe the black diamond version has only 256MB ram, and the hardcore ROG version 1GB?
    or is google translate confusing me?
