What is new in 802.11ax
802.11ax promises a lateral progression of the WiFi standard. Until now, all new WiFi specifications were focused on improving the peak data rates. 802.11ax takes a side step and promises higher efficiency rather than higher peak rates. It promises to improve the total throughput in a cell and deliver more data to the clients rather than try to improve the speed at which the data is transmitted. 802.11ax features will be available in 2.4 GHz band as well (as opposed to 802.11ac which was available only in 5GHz).

What Drives Great WiFi Access Point Performance? Hardware Components and Software Architecture.
Posted by Robert Ferruolo (Dr. RF) on Sep 20, 2016

Why don’t most enterprise WiFi access point vendors tell you what’s inside their AP? They don’t publish which WiFi chipset the AP uses, or the CPU specification. At best they state the amount of RAM. When you evaluate APs for your deployment, you should consider hardware components. Hardware components and the software running on it will impact the AP’s performance and user experience. The test results below demonstrate this.
