RB850Gx2 vs RB450Gx4

Thu May 17, 2018 12:19 pm

Hi All,

Today I noticied that the RB850Gx2 is no longer on the mikrotik website.
In place there is a routerboard called RB450Gx4.

What is the main difference and why is the RB850Gx2 no longer availible?

Info RB450Gx4:
https://mikrotik.com/product/rb450gx4

Anybody any thoughts?
Testing and working with: RB1100AHx4, CRS125, RB2011, RB1100AHx2, RB951G, RB850Gx2, RB450. RB411U

indeed it's cheaper than the 850Gx2, but compared to the hAP ac2 - which is almost the same - it's more expensive ($99 vs $69)
i know it packs faster 1GB RAM instead of 256MB, and has a _lot_ bigger flash and an uSD card slot. and finally af/at poe and poe OUT - the stuff i miss from hAP ac2.
but hey, the price is still very good!

can we assume that Mikrotik will ditch the PPC platform altogether?
the RB1100 series is already arm. now the RBx50 as well. the last survivor seems to be the RB800.

So according to your sheet the RB450Gx4 should have the possibillity for dualband wifi?
Wonder why mikrotik did'nt put it in.

i guess space constraints. the extra power input jack, the serial console, poe-out, all take up valuable space. and to have wifi you would need some extra circuitry

No heatsink on the IPQ4019 chip?! Is it really that power efficient?

Probably only on demonstration photo. I think that the CPU will have heatsink in serial models of boards.
Veni. Vidi. Feci.

1) 2.4 GHz module is disabled
2) 2.4 GHz wlan co-processor CPU #1 is disabled
3) 5 GHz module is disabled
4) 5 GHz wlan co-processor CPU #2 is disabled
5) no 2 amplifier modules for 2.4GHz
6) no 2 amplifier modules for 5GHz

As total, power consumption is 5Wt - compared to 11 Wt for hAP ac^2

Anyway... near CPU we see 2 holes for heatsink.
