ASUS has just launched its high performance PCE-AC88 Wi-Fi PCIe adapter.

The PCE-AC88 connects to a PCIe x1 slot and is powered by Broadcom's BCM4366 SoC.

This enables it to support speeds of up to 2167Mbps on compatible 5GHz networks, and speeds of up to 1000Mbps on compatible 1GHz networks. The PCE-AC88 adapter will also support MU-MIMO technology.

The ASUS PCE-AC88 also comes with detachable external antennas and an external magnetic antenna base, so that users can position the antennas optimally for better performance.

Users can also choose to attach the antennas directly to the adapter itself.

The large red heatsink has been designed for optimal heat dissipation, allowing the PCE-AC88 adapter to run without rest and stably even under heavy workloads.

The ASUS PCE-AC88 Wi-Fi PCIe adapter will be launched at COMEX 2016 and will be priced at S$169
