Take a look at below link for hardware for Fritz!Boxs, these references tend to be reliable
Basically – 7582 is Broadcom and 7583 is Lantiq (now Intel) with same CPU clock speed as Broadcom.
Edit: forgot to say, the DSL-AC88U has same DSL chipset as 7582 (BCM 63138)
AVM FRITZ!Box 7580
AVM FRITZ!Box 7581
AVM FRITZ!Box 7582
AVM FRITZ!Box 7583
AVM FRITZ!Box 7590

7582 are international and for providers only (they can hand it out their customers), AFAIK there are no german-only versions of it and you cant buy it in shops, maybe there are 1&1 versions you should better avoid (could have some provider branding and/or limitations).
But even 7490 and 7590 seems to become international, all 7.19 (beta) firmwares can be used on german and international routers with language and timezone support.
Dont know differences of chips, you have to ask Broadcom.
But it cant be an old chip, otherwise there wont be a G.fast support on router.

My contract with TalkTalk runs out in a month or so. Hyperoptic is available in my building. Never used them before but decided to take the plunge on their 150Mb package. Hope it is the right decision. At least I will not have to deal with this router for a while if things go well.January 19, 2020 at 8:22 am #5801UK SentinelModerator
£20.80 for there Superfast Service (150Mbps), a Great Price, Glad the DSL-AC88U can now RiP – Enjoy your new ZTE Router .

Hi, i am from Germany, recently upgraded to 1&1 DSL 250 supervectoring and what a surprise my DSL-AC88U Annex B doesn’t sync with 35b with all the settings tried, only 17a syncing well (100MB/S) it seems the Router doesn’t support Annex Q supervectoring (V/Plus) despite it says on the package that it does or may be i’m missing something. Has anyone tried or have supervectoring 35b ? At the moment i am using Fritzbox 7530 from 1&1 and it’s working flawlessly but i would prefer ASUS because the better WiFi . Very pity indeedFebruary 9, 2020 at 8:49 am #5975UK SentinelModerator
I am unsure how long you have owned the DSL-AC88U, but I would return the router to shop as it is rumoured the DSL-AC88U is no longer supported by ASUS (no new Firmware).
The DSL-AC88U uses the Broadcom 63138 chipset, which does support 35b, – https://www.broadcom.com/products/broadband/xdsl/bcm63138
If not possible to return to shop/retailer, then have you tried manually selected the 35b DSL option rather than allowing auto detect for synch.
Also, ensure you are using the latest firmware Version 1.10.06_Build591 – if that does not work, try an older firmware for testing.

I have had DSL-AC88U Annex B since May 2018 bought from online retailer, if i have no luck returning it i will definitely sell it on E-bay. Regarding manual selection – it doesn’t help, even after resetting to factory settings it finds only 17a profile, it’s useless for supervectoring and i don’t really want to spend more time trying old firmwares, especially when i found my “new love” very reliable Fritzbox

Yes, Fritz!Box are a good units and very reliable, I have 3490, alas I had a look at some other forums for the DSl-AC88U Annex B and it does seems as though 35b profile does not work well.
Most Friz!boxs support Mesh Wifi, so radio signal issues/strength can be resolved
Maybe worth sending ASUS a feedback form and asking them to provide guidance if you cannot return the DSL-AC88U and/or just sell as you say.
