Today, TP-Link extended its portfolio of gaming routers with the Archer C5400X MU-MIMO Tri-Band Gaming Router. With eight external antennas, it looks like an alien spaceship, or some sort of overturned robotic spider. It has three Wi-Fi bands, eight Gigabit LAN ports, one Gigabit WAN port and two USB 3.0 ports.
The router's dynamic optimization engine has a gaming mode that identifies gaming traffic to give players a tactical advantage and eliminate lag. It's also designed for watching streams of "immersive 4K movies." There's a Smart Connect mode for detecting the best Wi-Fi band for every device, as well as RangeBoost technology for extending your reception throughout the home and even into your backyard.
Link Aggregation teams two of the eight Gigabit LAN ports or one LAN with the WAN port to double connection speed. Antivirus works from the router to protect all your devices from cyber threats.
"Delivering continuous rapid Wi-Fi across your entire home, Archer C5400X features a 1.8 GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU, three co-processors and 1 GB RAM to reach Wi-Fi speeds up to 5400 Mbps over one 2.4 GHz (1000 Mbps) and two 5 GHz (2167 Mbps) bands. With three Wi-Fi bands, eight Gigabit LAN ports and one Gigabit WAN port, Archer C5400X routers create solid connections for more devices across your network," says TP-Link.
The Archer C5400X is available now for $400.
