Does the beamforming of the new AP Extreme also apply to 802.11n bands?

I am trying to determine if there is any benefit to be had by adding this device to my network that only uses 802.11n devices. If there is a faster transmission, a wider range, or beamforming I would be inclined to buy this product to enhance my home network and to improve my AppleTV response time and my Time Capsule backups.

    No, beaming is is limited to only 802.11AC devices. But you will likely notice improved performance over your current router.
