The AX9000 comes as Xiaomi’s fourth Wi-Fi 6 router and joins the company’s AX1800, AX3600 and AX6000 models, with support for Mesh technology that lets you connect multiple routers to create a unified Wi-Fi network. The router shares some of the features of the AX6000 model, including 4K QAM, which offers a 20% speed improvement over the previous generation, increased bandwidth 4×4 160MHz and more.
As with all Xiaomi’s routers, the AX9000 router also supports mesh networking, so it can be used to connect and expand coverage area with other Xiaomi Wi-Fi 6 series routers (AX1800, AX3600 and AX6000).
The external pyramid design is very similar to those of the AX6000 Next-Gen Wi-Fi Router and the ASUS ROG Rapture gaming tri-band router series. The router pyramid design features 4 large triangular antennas containing 3 internal antennas that support 2.4GHz, 5.2GHz and 5.8GHz frequencies, allowing you to create 3 separate networks up to 1148 Mbps, 4804 Mbps and 240 Mbps, respectively. For external appearance improvement Xiaomi also added configurable RGB light with different visual effects. Finally, Xiaomi also added a USB 3.0 Host port, something that didn’t exist in previous models so you can connect an external hard drive and share your media files over the internet or local network.
A Closer Look at the Xiaomi AX9000
Xiaomi also incorporated a quite massive heat sink unit which covers the router PCB. Above it Xiaomi also added a blower to dissipate excessive heat.
The AX9000 comes in Dimensions of 270 × 270 × 174mm. Compared to the previous AX6000 with a width of 408mm, it is still quite large in size, and can be positioned on a table without taking up too much space.
The AX9000 router uses Qualcomm’s IPQ8072 chip, which comes with a 4-core Cortex-A53 processor running at 2.0GHz and a pair of dedicated 1.7GHz NPU cores, along with 1GB of memory. The router has 2.5 GbE dedicated LAN ports, 2 of which can also be configured as a WAN, and one that also supports the faster 2.5GbE standard. In addition, the router combines a USB 3.0 connection that allows a storage device to be connected to the router in order to be used as a NAS device for storing information on the network.
Price & availability
The Xiaomi Router AX6000 comes in Black color, priced at 999 yuan (US$ 152), available to order and goes on sale in China starting from April.
