By 2020, “Super Cup” has become a high-frequency word in the digital circle. When various brands launch a series of products, they belong to a series of products with different prices, and there are also some differences in hardware configuration. Among them, the product with the highest configuration will be jokingly called “Super Cup”. In June this year, redmi released its first Wi Fi 6 router, redmi router ax5. Two months later, redmi has launched the “Super Cup” product redmi router ax6. What are the progress of this product? Come on, let’s explore with me. < / P > < p > when zhaimi Xiaobian just got the redmi router ax6, the time seemed to have passed two months ago, because the appearance design of this product is so similar to that of redmi router ax5! The two are almost the same from the same mold. Also using a large area of grid hollow design, through the grid can not only see the layout of internal components, but also quickly transfer the heat generated in the router working process to the air. Moreover, the cost of plastic hollow design is lower and more practical. < / P > < p > of course, if you look at it carefully, there are still some differences in design. First of all, the size of the redmi router ax6 is larger. The volume of the redmi router ax5 is actually very small. The overall size is like the aluminum lunch box commonly used by people in the 1980s. The volume of redmi router ax6 is larger than one circle. In terms of volume, you can easily distinguish which product is “big cup” and which is “super large cup”. < / P > < p > in addition, in some subtle designs, the two are also slightly different. The redmi logo and “system” and “Internet” lights are printed on the top of the body of the redmi router ax5, while there is only a small redmi logo right above the body of the redmi router ax6, and the indicator light is moved to the side of the body. The design of the bottom and the back of the body is basically the same. Two holes are reserved at the bottom to facilitate the user to hang the router on the wall to give high praise. The back of the fuselage is also equipped with a power hole, a reset port, a WAN port and three Gigabit LAN ports. It is still a small pity that the blind insertion of the network port is not supported. < / P > < p > mobile phones usually distinguish “big cup” and “super large cup” by screen resolution, refresh rate, number of cameras, pixels and charging power. On routers, the “big cup” and “super large cup” are distinguished by the number of antennas, processors and signals. < / P > < p > redmi router ax5 adopts four qorvo high-performance independent signal amplifiers and four external high gain antennas. On this basis, redmi router ax6 adopts six external high gain omnidirectional antennas made of phosphor copper material, and supports LDPC error correction algorithm, which can significantly enhance the anti-interference ability and signal coverage during data transmission. At the same time, the redmi router ax6 also adopts six external high gain omnidirectional antennas made of phosphor copper, which can significantly enhance the anti-interference ability and signal coverage during data transmission Ax6 is equipped with 2-way and 4-channel high-performance independent signal amplifiers in 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands respectively, which can enhance signal transmitting power and receiving sensitivity, which are also reflected in subsequent tests. < / P > < p > the performance of redmi router ax5 can meet the needs of most users, and redmi router ax6 is even better. Upgrade the Qualcomm ipq6000 SOC to a high-performance 6-core enterprise chip. It uses 14nm process to process 4-core 1.4GHz A53 chip + Dual Core NPU 1.7GHz, with 12800dmips computing power. The addition of NPU is specially designed to process network traffic data, which can effectively reduce CPU load. Whether it is playing games or chasing dramas, the network speed is faster and the delay is lower. < / P > < p > redmi router ax6 is also upgraded to 160MHz. 5g Wi Fi supports two modes of MU-MIMO, 2×2 160MHz and 4x480mhz, without manual selection. The signal strength is increased by 3dB, and the coverage rate is increased by 30%. It supports MU-MIMO (multi-user multiple input and multiple output) and 5g homologous OFDMA (orthogonal frequency division multiple access) technology, which allows multiple users to transmit at the same time in the same channel, which can greatly reduce the data queuing, and thus improve the concurrent ability of equipment and the average terminal rate. Now, the router completes the data transmission of 8 devices in one transmission, and the network delay is reduced by 36%. < / P > < p > What’s more, redmi router ax6 cancels the IOT antenna of Xiaomi router ax3600, but supports Xiaomi’s smooth connection. Xiaomi Changkuai is connected to the antenna of Xiaomi router aiot. Through the connection, users can easily access the network of new devices. Open the Mijia app to discover the uninitialized devices and complete the network access with one click. Even if the router password is changed, there is no need to reset the device one by one. The device supporting the smooth connection can automatically synchronize the new password of the router and connect back quickly. < / P > < p > the redmi router ax5 carries 256MB of large memory and supports 128 devices accessing at the same time. On this basis, redmi router ax6 increases the memory to 512MB and supports 248 devices to connect at the same time. When smart home ecology is really popular in the future, the router function can be maximized. According to the official introduction, when multiple devices are connected to the Internet, in the game scene, the router can automatically identify and enable exclusive acceleration for Xiaomi / redmi mobile phone, which can reduce game delay and jam. < / P > < p > it is still a familiar house type, or the 500m package of “smart wojia family” of China Unicom. The distribution network of redmi router ax6 is still very simple. Xiaobian chooses dynamic IP to access the Internet. After connecting the network cable and connecting Wi Fi without password by mobile phone, it will automatically jump to the configuration page and directly set the Wi Fi name and password in the page. < / P > < p > after connecting to 5g Wi Fi, first use Speedtest to test the network speed. The data is shown in the figure. The download speed reaches 627mbps and the upload speed is 37.3mbps, keeping the same level as before. Redmi router ax6 also supports 2.4G and 5g dual band in one, concurrent wireless Mbps. At the same time, the Wi Fi 5 compatible mode can be turned on. When it is enabled, OFDMA, BSS coloing and other functions cannot be experienced. < / P > < p > after having a general understanding of network speed performance, Xiaobian uses Wi Fi evaluation master to test redmi router ax6 in detail at point a. As can be seen from the figure, the average delay of redmi router ax6 is 13ms, the packet loss rate is 0%; the signal strength is – 33dbm, the connection rate is 1200mbps; the web page response speed is 0.01s, the loading speed is 22.5mbps, and the full loading time is 0.13s; the broadband download rate is 567.2mbps, and the upload speed is 42.5mbps; the buffer time of video on demand is 0.22s, the number of stuck times is 1, and the buffer rate is 8 3mbps, it can be said that after actual testing, redmi router ax6 performs better than redmi router ax5 in some data. < / P > < p > in order to test the performance of four 5g antennas, we connect 5g Wi Fi on the balcony of the master bedroom to test the router. The router signal needs to pass through two walls to reach this position. The ordinary router signal weakens seriously. At this location, the average delay of redmi router ax6 is 13.9ms, the packet loss rate is 0%; the signal strength is – 67dbm, the connection rate is 288mbps; the web page response speed is 0s, the loading speed is 21.7mbps, and the full loading time is 0.16s; the broadband download rate is 130.3mbps, and the upload speed is 43.1mbps; the buffer time of video on demand is 0.23s, the number of stuck times is 0, and the buffer rate is 60.7mbps, In this signal dead corner, the 5g network performance of redmi router ax6 is very good. If you switch to 2.4G Wi Fi with stronger penetration, I believe it will have better performance in signal strength. < / P > < p > in terms of functions, in fact, there is nothing to say. No matter it is commonly used functions such as children’s Internet protection, anti scratch network, visitors’ Wi Fi, etc., it should have. Moreover, redmi router ax6 supports mesh networking, and can directly network with other millet routers supporting mesh on the app, so as to achieve seamless coverage of signals in the whole house. < / P > < p > by the way, there is another point. The original Netease UU accelerator of the Xiaomi aiot router ax3600 has become the Tencent online game accelerator. After binding the account, it will send members for three months. < / P > < p > you can take redmi router ax6 as an upgrade version of redmi router ax5. Its appearance makes up for some regrets on ax5. You can also regard redmi router ax6 as the degraded version of Xiaomi aiot router ax3600, abandoning the appearance and unique price of aiot antenna element, which is really very fragrant.
