Just stumbled upon the Netgear R7000P yesterday. At first glance, looks like an R7000 with upgraded Wireless Chipsets supporting MU-MIMO:

Has anyone encountered one or tried to load DD-WRT yet? It looks like the direct successor to the R7000.

Kong, any idea how it fits with the other boxes in this class?

Hi. I was curious if you tried to flash the R7000P with dd-wrt? I have the R7000P. I want to assume it would take the same firmware as the R7000 AC1900. However, I don't want to risk bricking my router either.

Won't work, the 7000P has different radios. Even if it would boot, all the radio params would be wrong.
Thus the best you can get is a badly working radio and the worst that can happen is that it uses a different flashlayout and you wipe areas that will fully break the unit.

Will there be a release for the r7000p in the near future?

Thanks.
