Asus has introduced the first gaming Wi-Fi 6 router from the ROG Strix family

Strix is ​​one of the product families that Asus offers under its gaming brand Republic of Gamers (ROG). Includes laptops, desktops, graphics cards or various peripherals. And now it is expanding with the first router. ROG Strix GS-AX5400 is a router that fits best into the upper middle class. It is aimed primarily at players who are not only concerned with high performance, but also with design. The router has an asymmetrically shaped body with distinctive edges and a large logo of the Strix series. Four external antennas are visible.

The most significant element will be the light strip, which is compatible with the Aura RGB system. The backlight can be controlled individually using the supplied software, or completely deactivated if you do not want the light to disturb you at night. However, you can also use color combinations and effects synchronized with other ROG products equipped with Aura backlighting. However, rather than the exterior design, we will focus on the technical parameters of the new wireless router.

The ROG Strix GS-AX5400 supports the Wi-Fi 6 standard (also known as IEEE 802.11ax) and uses two frequency bands (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz). In the first band it can reach speeds of up to 574 Mb / s, in the second up to 4.8 Gb / s. This means a theoretical overall speed of 5.2 Gb / s. However, only the 5 GHz band benefits from the Wi-Fi 6 standard, such as 160 MHz channel width and Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology, which reduces latency by more efficient bandwidth allocation and allows multiple terminals to be connected simultaneously.

The router hides a three-core chipset clocked at up to 1.5 GHz, which is complemented by 512 MB of RAM and 256 MB of storage for firmware. This is a sufficient configuration for fast data transfer and minimal latency. With its new router, Asus also addresses users of consoles and smartphones, who can use software functions to prioritize data traffic in favor of these devices. For example, the Mobile Game Mode feature available in the Asus Router mobile app promises to reduce latency with a single click. It is even possible to connect to a VPN and use a regular low-latency Internet connection on up to two devices at the same time. This feature is called VPN Fusion.

ROG Strix GS-AX5400 includes built-in security software AiProtection Pro from Trend Micro and supports the encryption standard. With AiMesh, you can then create your own mesh system by connecting compatible Asus routers. As for the connectors on the back of the router, there is one WAN interface, four LAN interfaces (all with gigabit speed) and USB. Asus has not specified the price of the new router yet, but it will definitely not be less than CZK 5,000.
