World’s fastest Wireless Router unveiled

News Wireless Devices

ASUS launched an ultra-high-performance tri-band wireless router, RT-AC5300 that is powered by Broadcom NitroQAM technology to deliver world’s fastest combined Wi-Fi data rates of up to 5334Mbit/s1.

The futuristically-styled router is designed for enthusiasts and gamers, and it uses a 4×4 (4-transmit, 4-receive) MIMO antenna array on all three bands. Combined with AiRadar universal beamforming and Tri-Band Smart Connect, RT-AC5300 provides outstanding multi-device performance, with super-wide coverage.

For the smoothest-ever online gaming, RT-AC5300 includes an exclusive built-in game accelerator powered by Gamers Private Network (GPN) from WTFast, which significantly reduces ping times and latency for an unrivaled experience in virtually all competitive multi-player online games.

The RT-AC5300 uses a tri-band AC5300-class design, with two independent 5GHz frequency bands and one 2.4GHz frequency. The device also uses eight detachable dual-band external antennas in a 4×4 MIMO array, with ASUS AiRadar universal beamforming providing unrivaled multi-device performance and wireless signal coverage. AiRadar focuses the Wi-Fi signal on a device to improve performance, stability and range.

Broadcom NitroQAM technology boosts the maximum speed of each 5GHz frequency band from the standard 1734Mbit/s to a blistering 2167Mbit/s, and on the 2.4GHz frequency band speeds are increased speeds from 800Mbit/s to 1000Mbit/s for a world-leading combined throughput of 5334Mbit/s — over five times (5X) the bandwidth of a wired Gigabit Ethernet connection. This extreme bandwidth provides users with more than enough capacity to deliver low-latency online gaming, smooth streaming of 4K/UHD videos and ultra-fast file sharing to all connected devices.

The ASUS RT-AC5300 includes an exclusive built-in client and a free subscription to WTFast that gives users the very best online gaming experience — at no extra cost!

WTFast uses GPN, a dedicated global private network, which automatically gives users the lowest ping times and reduced latency — critical network parameters in online games — for smooth, uninterrupted gameplay. GPN can reduce average game ping times by 30-60%, lower average speed deviations by 70-90%, and cut bad router hops by 70-90%. By routing gaming data packets automatically via the most efficient internet route, packet loss is reduced, ensuring a responsive and frustration-free gaming experience. GPN supports virtually all competitive multi-player online games, and has optimized settings for many of the most popular titles.

The game accelerator is integrated into RT-AC5300’s easy-to-use ASUSWRT graphical user interface, so it consumes no system resources on the game device. This also means that the benefits can be experienced on any gaming platform — including Windows, Mac OS, Linux and game consoles — regardless of the manufacturer or operating system.
