Linksys today announced at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, the upcoming availability of the new Linksys WRT gaming edition router – the WRT32X.
This first of its kind collaboration, Linksys and Rivet Networks teamed to incorporate the Killer Prioritization Engine (KPE) to provide serious online gamers the only router optimized for high-speed gaming for users with Killer-enabled gaming PCs.
The KPE optimizes traffic for low latency and less lag and ensures that the Killer-enabled PC's gaming, audio, and video is fast and smooth, while simultaneously managing other online traffic in the home to ensure other devices and activities are not compromised.
The new firmware and graphical user interface (GUI) was also custom-built from the ground up with a focus on monitoring and controlling gaming network traffic.
The WRT32X Wi-Fi Gaming Router features 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.
The Linksys WRT32X is available for pre-order starting today and plans to ship starting in September 2017.
