Despite the specs I think 350 dollars for a router is very high.

yes, a bit too pricey

Does it come with an RTX 3080, by chance?

looks like it'll take off and shoot rockets at my cat

Little pricey. Not really any difference over their existing models except WiFi 6 considering most of these "features" are baked into DumaOS. If it was WiFi 6E, I'd be more willing to pay the price. But again, not much difference when compared to the XR500 I already have.
Asus just launched their first 6E router, but that's another gamer-y based model that is likely to retail at $450-500 considering the existing model retails for $450. Hopefully we'll see more 6E devices trickle out in the future.

Wow, only four antennas.   Usually they have six or eight so they can pull off that alien spaceship/spider look.

Currently been using router / modem / cable box form cable provider, its active one from cable vision. So far its worked okay. Can't see spending the money for a router more than 200

are gaming routers really worth it over regular routers and ethernet?
