Earlier this year, the Federal Communications Commission paved the way for a new generation of Wi-Fi connectionsFor unauthorized use. Now, at the Meta Buffs launch event, Asus is taking advantage of this new Wi-Fi feature, and announces its first router that supports In this range 6 GHz.
Specifically, it is the Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, its high-end tri-bandWhich will arrive in stores in December this year. Like the previous router in the lineup, the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000, the new model features eight antennas in a modern, striking design designed to appeal to gamers – but as the additional “E” in the model number suggests, it adds support for Wi-Fi 6E.
“Asus is a pioneer in the networking market and was the first to launch a Wi-Fi 6 router,” the company said in a press release announcing the product. “Asus now offers wider bandwidth and increased Wi-Fi 6E channels at 160MHz with the ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, the world’s first Wi-Fi 6E router.”
Pricing details have not yet been determined, but given that the formerForm is , You shouldn’t expect the GT-AXE11000 to come cheap once it arrives.
The big advantage of Wi-Fi 6E support is that it allows devices to accessIn the 6 GHz range. With 1200MHz, its width is more than twice the 5GHz band, allowing for a greater number of wider channels that can pass traffic faster and more efficiently. And since there aren’t any old Wi-Fi devices in this range, it will act as a semi-exclusive VIP section for the latest Wi-Fi gadgets equipped to take advantage of them. This means less interference and improved latency.
Earlier this year, Perry Correll, Extreme Networks Product Marketing Director, who sits in the IEEE 11ax and Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi 6 task groups, explained that Wi-Fi 6E connections may beOn the cutting edge.
“AR / VR and gaming are another great use case for the 6GHz band,” Corel told CNET. “Not many people realize that high-end VR kits that require the most bandwidth are physically tied to cables. With Wi-Fi 6E, you not only get more bandwidth but also cleaner bandwidth – which means that they are able to deliver higher data wirelessly at rates. Required along with real mobility. “
Besides Wi-Fi 6E support, the GT-AXE11000 is powered by a 1.8GHz 64-bit CPU with 1GB of RAM. Supports 4X4 Wi-Fi 6 connections, features a multi-functional LAN port for wire speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps, and allows for WAN aggregation, where you can combine the speeds coming from two Ethernet WAN ports to achieve wireless speeds of up to 2Gbps. The router also uses the “latest 6GHz amplifier” to improve signal strength and coverage – a noteworthy inclusion, given that the signals.
We hope to know a lot more about this new gaming router in the coming weeks – including the actual cost. Once we have the opportunity to test it ourselves, we’ll make sure to tell you everything about it, so stay tuned.
