Use 3 Separate Bands For High Quality Communications:
Asus ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 is not only for gaming use and apart from gamers, it should also be responsive to other users who are connected to the router for other tasks, these needs can be a smart TV connection for Video Streaming, connecting a laptop or multiple smartphones for Web Surfing and Email Checking or connecting a number of different gadgets for different tasks to the WiFi network. For this reason, this router uses 3 separate communication bands to meet all possible needs. These communication bands consist of 2 communication bands at a frequency of 5Ghz, each with a speed of 2167Mbps, and 1 communication band at a frequency of 2.4Ghz with a speed of 1000Mbps. One of the 5Ghz communication bands is used to connect high-speed equipment such as Game Consoles and the other to connect smart TVs, The 2.4Ghz communication band is also used to connect smartphones, tablets and other equipment that do not require high bandwidth.
High Speed Ports:
Having 8 LAN ports with speeds of 1Gbps on this device is a great advantage for this router because in a crowded network with a large number of cable devices, you will be needless to buy an extra switch. If you need more than 1Gbps on the network, you can aggregate 2 of these ports together and reach 2Gbps speeds. The Asus ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 also has a WAN port with speeds of 1Gbps, allowing users to connect to the internet at high speed.Another advantage of this device is having 2 USB-3 ports that allow high-speed access to the contents of USB-Drives, and practically this router plays the role of a high-speed file server for users as well.
Triple Level Game Acceleration :
This gaming wifi router has special capabilities to enhance the quality of online games, by utilizing 3 proprietary capabilities to strengthen the gamer’s communication from the game console to the main server. These 3 features include:
- GameFirst V – ROG First: A proprietary program from Asus Company designed and built for ROG series equipment, this program can strengthen your computer’s connection with a ROG series router and serve your computer with greater priority.
- Game Boost: This feature works by analyzing the incoming traffic to the router, detects the packets related to game consoles and serves them with a higher priority. This service simply runs with a click on the router’s management console (Generally available in every gaming wifi router) .
- Gamers private Network: This feature, implemented by “WTfast”, creates a dedicated network for gamers to get faster access to Game Servers, in this case, the Ping Time rate is significantly reduced and as a result, the quality of the game increases dramatically.
This router has an internal security system designed and implemented by Trend Micro ( a famous cloud-based security company). This feature is called “Asus AiProtection Pro”,this system protects your gaming network from all security risks and neutralizes them before they reach your network and devices. Even if your computer’s security system is turned off. This feature of the router can be a solid barrier against external security risks. In addition to these benefits, the level of security of this system is so high that it can detect and limit a pre-infected system immediately after connecting to the network and prevent it from from publishing the infection everywhere
Fusion VPN Capability:
On all cable and wireless networks, a series of equipment may require the use of a VPN service, and other devices may require normal Internet use. Usually routers can’t cover these two types of needs at the same time, and all users either have to use the regular Internet or use a VPN connection. But this router with Fusion VPN capability makes it possible and you can simultaneously service a group of users from the VPN route and route the others through the normal Internet connection.
Compatible With AiMesh Technology:
Asus has a proprietary Mesh technology called “AiMesh”, which is able to create a fully integrated and seamless WiFi network by connecting several routers compatible with this technology together. Asus has used this technology on this router, which means you can use this router as “Primary AiMesh Router” or as “AiMesh Node” in an integrated AiMesh network.
Various tests were performed on the router by the WiFiAdviser technical team, including security testing, speed testing in 4K online games, file transfer speed testing in high-noise and low-noise environments, connection stability testing and dedicated gaming capabilities testing, and VPN Fusion tests. In the end, we gave this router a score of 8.5 out of 10, which is a very good score for a gaming wifi router. By purchasing this router, you will have an excellent home gaming network and you will not have any restrictions in using game consoles.
