I'd buy it just because it will probably be the coolest looking router and it can go with my other Alienware products. I hope they have FX lighting on it! Killer may look good on paper, but real world results are negligible from the many articles that I have read.
I've been following this closely over the last few months. What I got so far...
The alienware router is going to feature streamboost technology, Qualcomm hasn't released anything with this QOS tech yet. The first router I can find with it is this Dlink DGL-5550 gaming router.
Scheduled release date is August 1 2013
From the info Qualcomm released at CES about the AW router, they said be prepared for a summer release.
So, August seems like the obvious time that it could be released to the public in sync with the other new streamboost routers.
Boy oh boy that's really awesome. I just watched video and the features - AI of content recognition; specifically monitoring of applications and their toll on bandwidth; cool GUI; latency improvement during gaming; Clouding app specific updates ; etc. Marvelous.
