Earlier this year, the Federal Communications Commission paved the way for a new generation of Wi-Fi connections. Meta Buffs launch event, Asus takes advantage of that new Wi-Fi real estate and announces the first router to support it In that 6GHz band.For unlicensed use. Now, its
Specifically, this is the Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, a high-end, tri-bandIt will hit stores in December this year. Like the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000, the previous router in the lineup, the new model includes eight antennas in a modern, show-off design intended to attract gamers – but adds support for Wi-Fi 6E, as indicated by the extra “e” in the model number.
“Asus is an established leader in the networking market, launching the first Wi-Fi 6 router,” the company said in a statement. “Asus now delivers a wider bandwidth, and has boosted Wi-Fi 6E’s 160 MHz channels with the ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, the world’s first Wi-Fi 6E router.”
Pricing details have not been decided yet, but as beforeIs the model , Do not expect the GT-AXE11000 to be cheaper once it arrives.
The great advantage of support for Wi-Fi 6E is that it allows access to devicesIn the 6GHz band. With 1,200 MHz, it is more than twice as wide as the 5 GHz band, allowing wider channels to pass traffic faster and more efficiently. Since there are no legacy Wi-Fi devices in that band, it will act as a semi-exclusive VIP category for the latest Wi-Fi gadgets equipped to take advantage of it. This means less interference and better latency.
Earlier this year, Perry Coral, product marketing director at Extreme Networks, which sits in the IEEE 11 Max and Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi 6 task groups, explained that Wi-Fi 6E connections could be.On the cutting edge.
“AR / VR and gaming are another great use case for the 6GHz band,” Corel told CNET. “Many people do not realize that high – end VR sets that require the most bandwidth are actually connected to cables. With Wi – Fi 6E you get not only more bandwidth but also cleaner bandwidth – which means you need to charge rates with real mobility.”
In addition to Wi-Fi 6E support, the GT-X11000 is powered by a 1.8 GHz, 64-bit CPU with 1GB of RAM. It supports 4×4 Wi-Fi 6 connections, introduces a multi-gig LAN port for wire speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps, and allows van aggregation, where you can combine incoming speeds from two Ethernet van ports to achieve wireless speeds of up to 2 Gbps. The router uses the “latest 6GHz power amplifier” to improve signal strength and coverage – notable inclusion from signals.
We hope to know more about this new gaming router in the coming weeks – including how much it actually costs. Once we have the opportunity to try it out for ourselves, we will tell you all about it, so go ahead.
