Hi, I just wondering if AX92U sounds more superior than AX88U? Should I opt for 92 rather than 88 as we are using unifi turbo 800MB and love to use its HyppTV on unifi and VPN on router. Or should i go for AC5300 (GT or RT) Thank you sir.

Is CPU processes in a deskstoo plays a big role in fully utilities 800Mbps?
