ASUS Wi-Fi routers are very popular because of their stable, high-speed coverage over a wide area, and the funglr Games editorial department has two ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 routers in its fleet.
ASUS has now released a new gaming Wi-Fi router, the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000.
Next-generation WiFi 6 (802.11ax) support
The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 supports the next-generation 802.11ax wireless LAN standard, delivering ultra-fast speeds of up to 4804 Mbps in the 5 GHz band.
Of course, it is compatible with any Wi-Fi standard, including the current mainstream standards 802.11ac and 802.11n.
Technology for high speed and low latency
The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 incorporates a variety of technologies for high-speed, low-latency, and stable communications.
OFDMA technology, which divides each channel into smaller sub-channels, allows signals from multiple devices to be transmitted together for smoother, latency-free communication.
The short sub-channels can cover up to 80% of the wireless coverage area.
The Target Wake Time function adjusts the data transmission interval of the device and puts it to sleep when the router does not need to wait for a signal. This significantly improves battery consumption, which can last up to 7 times longer.
3-stage boost mode
The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000's three levels of game acceleration allow users to comfortably play games that require high communication speeds.
The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 supports GameFirst V software, which prioritizes game communication packets for processing. All LAN ports are equipped with a gaming LAN port that prioritizes game communication to accelerate game communication.
The onboard Adaptive QoS game boost provides packet priority control and supports a variety of gaming devices such as PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Ensures optimal Internet communication paths through wtfast®'s gamer-private network. This prevents packet loss and ensures a lag-free gaming environment.
Easy-to-configure port forwarding
Port forwarding is used when direct external communication is required for game use.
Port forwarding can be easily configured in 3 steps.
- Open NAT" allows chatting, multiplayer, and hosting regardless of the other party's NAT type.
- Moderate NAT", which allows chat and multiplayer play only with selected parties and does not allow you to be the host.
- Strict NAT", which allows you to chat and play multiplayer with open NAT type partners, but you cannot be the host.
The three types of connections can be used depending on the situation.
Extensive gaming Wi-Fi functionality
The onboard gaming radar can ping servers and select the one with the lowest latency.
One 5GHz band can be dedicated for gaming purposes, allowing for high speed communication without being affected by other connected devices.
The VPN Fusion feature allows users to simultaneously connect to a VPN and the Internet, maintaining gaming speeds even when using a VPN.
A full range of user-friendly features
The easy-to-read and easy-to-operate ROG interface makes it easy to configure various settings and check the status.
The main unit is equipped with AURA RGB, which offers more than 16.8 million color combinations and five preset patterns to set the desired effect.
Three security functions, "malicious site blocking," "vulnerability protection," and "infected device detection/blocking," employing Trend Micro security technology, can block external threats. Even when your PC's security software is turned off, the "Gaming IPS" can protect your network.
The most powerful gaming router ever!
The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 is the most powerful gaming router available today.
It is not just for gaming, but for everyday life as well, having a fast and stable Wi-Fi environment will make your Internet life more comfortable.
The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 is currently on sale and is priced at around 61,000 yen.
