Networking manufacturer Asus has recently announced a new gaming router at Computex 2018 - the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000. ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 is capable of delivering wireless speeds of up to 11,000Mbps.
With support for the latest 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard, GT-AX11000 delivers 2.53X higher data rates than any 802.11ac 4x4 router, ensuring faster connections. OFDMA support in the 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard allows multiple devices to be bundled together in each channel, increasing network efficiency by 4X and reducing latency.
ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 provides triple-level game acceleration to boost game traffic from the device to game server. A 2.5-Gigabit gaming port prioritizes the device connected to it with 2.5X faster transmit speeds, a perfect match for motherboards with 5 Gigabit LAN.
A physical button built into the router allows users to turn on and off Game Boost mode for prioritizing gaming traffic on the network for even better gaming performance without the need to use a web interface or mobile app. It can also activate the DFS band. Gamers Private Network (GPN) support ensures the shortest connection route between the user's home network and the game server, for the lowest ping times and latency.
