Linksys today announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the newest addition to the WRT product series – the Linksys Gaming Router designed for Xbox One - WRT32XB and new software enhancements to prioritize gaming on any device that will be available for the currently selling WRT32X and the new WRT32XB router.
The WRT32XB router incorporates the Killer Prioritization Engine (KPE), which will auto-detect any Xbox One, including Xbox One S and Xbox One X, and prioritize gaming packets automatically to provide serious console gamers with the best online gaming experience. The Killer Prioritization Engine identifies, prioritizes and accelerates Xbox gaming network traffic from any Xbox One console above all other devices in the home to deliver lower ping times and optimize online gaming.
The WRT32XB router starts with enterprise grade hardware: 1.8 GHz Dual-Core ARM CPU, 802.11ac Wave 2 Dual-band 3x3 wireless radio, 256MB Flash and 512MB of DDR3 Memory, and 5-port SOHO-grade Gigabit Ethernet switch with TCAM. For the software, the core firmware level uses the latest stable Linux kernel version for a streamlined and lightweight code base with low latency as the top focus.
WRT32XB is planned for availability in the USA for an estimated MSRP of $299.99 starting in February 2018.
