Asus has announced it will be releasing the first router to support Wi-Fi 6E transmissions in the 6 GHz band.

"Asus is an established leader in the networking market and was the first to launch a Wi-Fi 6 router," the Taiwanese company said in a press release. "Now Asus is delivering the wider bandwidth and increased 160 MHz channels of WiFi 6E with ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, the world's first Wi-Fi 6E router."

With a tri-band design and 802.11ax WiFi 6E connectivity, ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 supports speeds of up to 11,000 Mbps and features WAN aggregation for WAN speeds of up to 2 gigabits per second. With 4x4 WiFi 6 and a 2.5 gigabit-per-second LAN port, both wired and wireless networks can achieve speeds of more than 1 gigabit per second, bringing true multi-gigabit performance to life.

GT-AXE11000 is powered by a quad-core 1.8 GHz 64-bit CPU with 1 gigabyte of RAM, so it can handle heavy traffic in WiFi 6E networks. The router also uses the latest 6 GHz power amplifier to improve both the signal coverage and quality.

WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band, which has three-times more bandwidth than the 5 GHz band. It also adds seven extra 160 MHz channels to the current WiFi 6 standard, provides lower latency, and will be dedicated to WiFi 6E devices for maintaining high speeds that will not be affected by legacy devices.
