Amped Wireless logoAmped Wireless has previewed its first draft 801.11ac products.

The details on the router, extender and USB adapter are minimal with no pricing and only an "early 2013" ship date in the announcement.

The RTA15 High Power Dual Band AC 700mW Wi-Fi Router and REA20 High Power Dual Band AC 700mW Wi-Fi Range Extender sound like essentially the same product with two different names.

Both have three dual-band antennas and, in keeping with Amped's design approach, plenty of amplifiers.

A total of ten amplifiers in each product include four 5.0 GHz 700mW "2-Stage" amplifiers, two 2.4 GHz amplifiers and four "advanced low noise" components. Both the RTA15 and REA20 each also have a USB port for storage sharing and five Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Although Amped's announcements didn't say so, the 5 GHz draft 11ac radio in its router and extender should support a maximum link rate of 1300 Mbps in 80 MHz bandwidth mode and the 2.4 GHz radio should link at 450 Mbps when used in 40 MHz bandwidth mode.

Just like the other draft 11ac USB adapters announced to date, the ACA1 High Power AC Wi-Fi Adapter is only a two-stream design. So it will support maximum link rates of only 867 Mbps in 5 GHz and 300 Mbps in 2.4. A possible differentiation from other adapters may be its USB 3.0 interface.
