Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Xiaomi Mi Router 4A)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
Has dual-band technology
TP-Link TL-WR841N
Xiaomi Mi Router 4A
Dual-band devices can transmit data quickly on the newest 5GHz band, using recent standards (e.g., 802.11n, 802.11ac). They can also use the older 2.4GHz band if needed.
RAM
