S means Super. Note that the "Super High Power is missing on the Metal 9. It only has "HP" (High Power)
I hope you didn't order the product based on the banner without opening the product page
Well we contacted many people including this thread for many weeks with no answer.
And at the time looking at the brochure it only gave a referenced power level of 27dBm (~500mW) @ 11Mbit. So we assumed the higher power level advertised (30dBm / 1000mW) was for a different mode or lower speed. Without a response that's all we had to go by.
So YES we did order based on the advertised information on the main MikroTik website stating 1000mWatt.
Is there any likelihood that there will be a 900Mhz "S"
model @ 1000mW or better in future? RBMetal9S
Either way we will just have to make do with what's on order. But I would like to see a 1000mW or better 900Mhz model in the future.
The higher MikroTik power output compared to Ubiquiti products is one of our main buying points.
