Mikrotik 750G Already End-of-life?

This is what it sounds like, when routers cry.

While browsing the new site today I noticed that they have a “Product Archive” section. This section is described as “These products are not manufactured anymore, and are listed here only for reference.” In this section they have the RB750G listed.

I hope this is a mistake! I use these constantly and there is no clear successor to this fantastic product. If I expected anything to show up in the EOL section it was the RB750?

    They’ve replaced it with the 750GL. It has a 400mhz processor but twice the memory. I believe it’s described as “almost as fast”.

    Exactly! You get a $10 discount, but you get almost half the processing power.

    It doesn’t show it in the pictures, but it’s supposed to have a powered USB port as well.

    not really, it’s basically the same performance, plus it has larger L2MTU and more switch chip features

    Not cool. Maybe in Latvia progress works backwards??? I don’t understand why they would do this? I wonder if it has anything to do with Atheros shortages or Quailcomm buying Atheros?

    I see the device pic on the site. It says 750GL on the device, but the side doesn’t show the USB port cut out ? Plus the documentation doesn’t say anything about a USB port.

    Normunds to the rescue! I’m curious what the switch features might be…hmmm

    I told myself the same thing 🙁

    I’m not a consultant nor a mikrotik evangelist yet, but I praised my RB450 and now my RB750G everyday for it’s versatility, and I try to talk about mkt products now and then… If the GL can have it’s CPU pushed a little notch (probably just to reassure my subconscious) then, well, why not… otherwise it feels like a little backstep…

    They made a mistake with the initial pics and documentation. No USB after all.
