Design

The analysis of design for both the routers is merely the opposite. Linksys VelopACis in the form of a rectangular case which is tall and has a white matte finishing whereas Google Wi-fi is quite smaller in size with a cylinder shape and the white finishing give it a glossy look. Even Google Wi-fi is supported with LED light which makes it a better design.

Hardware

 Linksys Velop Ac 1300 is the newest mesh wi-fi system which was launched a few months ago. It consists of tri-band extender kit with an additional support. The processor supported by it is Quad-core Qualcomm IPQ4018 processor which is measured at 710 MHz. However, Google Mesh WifiRouter supports ARM quad-core processor IPQ4019 running at 710 MHz. It is the main difference between the two while comparing the processors.

 Transfer Data Rate

Google Wi-fi can transfer the data at 300 Mbps while using the radio bandwidth of 2.4 GHz and maximum data transfer rate of 870 Mbps with 5GHz radio. On the other hand, Linksys VelopAC1300 has the capacity to transfer data at the rate of 400 Mbps while using 2.4 GHz radio and with 5GHz it can transfer up to the rate of 867 Mbps.

Both of them are almost the same with the transfer rate but Linksys Velopwi-fi router has an advantage in this aspect of having additional radio band of 5GHz.
