Now this would be a nice CPU for RB5011 or Super-hAP. Too bad it will probably take years for Mikrotik to have such product and by then, 802.11ax will be already old and replaced by something even better...
just stating this quietly - you cannot compare Mikrotik to netgear/tplink/asus/you-name-it. those companies rush their first products to the market right after they have the SoC available. and those products are more or less a simplified version of QCs reference design platform. no consistency, no well established ecosystem, no feature parity: just the thing QC want to have. big CPE vendors who produce stuff for telco companies don't even bother to touch the original bundled linux kernel modules: i had an argument with one of them, they built their stuff around broadcom's BCM63381, and the initial kernel from BCM did not include the ages old kernel-mode l2tp driver. they re-did it in userland, and it was painstakingly slow and cpu taxing. they still claimed that anything on the kernel side is off-limits to them. and in many case they just get a bunch of binaries, and that's it: can't look, can't change, just smile.
so releasing a new device nowadays is about a 'new, innovative case design' with some 'web-ui branding' - and yes, it works. it delivers what the SoC manufacturer claims.
it takes tremendous effort to integrate new tech into your existing software ecosystem, and it takes a lots of time. wanna have just another clicky-shiny-web-ui-only router today, with no backward compatibility, no way to migrate your configuration, just buy one of those
but you cannot expect the same extra features you get with routerOS. that is the trade-off.
i too hope .11ax will get to mikrotik hw soon - not because of the chest-beating zillion bps numbers the 'commercial cpe vendors' put on their boxes - cause ODFMA is a great thing.
