Asus shows off ROG Rapture GT-AX6000 gaming router with 2.5 GbE and RGB

Asus has announced a new router in its Republic of Gamers line. The Rapture GT-AX6000 uses WiFi 6 (802.11ax) and can transmit a maximum speed of 6,000 Mbit/s. In terms of appearance, Asus has amply applied the well-known, black-red RoG style and supplemented it with an RGB-illuminated logo.

The Rapture GT-AX6000 supports 4×4 mu-mimo on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. It is powered by a quad-core processor from Broadcom, which has 256 MB of flash memory and 1 GB of ddr3 at its disposal. The router can be used with Asus’ own AiMesh protocol.

On the back are four RJ45 LAN ports (1 GbE) and two 2.5 GbE ports. One of the faster ports will be one for Van used. Through Van on and aggregation you can combine the bandwidth of multiple ports to achieve higher throughputs. The router also has two USB-a connectors (USB 2.0 and 3.2 gen 1).

Thanks to some software features, the GT-AX6000 should be extremely suitable for gaming. For example, there is VPN Fusion, which allows you to route only part of your network traffic via a VPN and connect the rest in the normal, direct way.
Connecting gaming devices to a specific LAN port automatically prioritizes them, and for smartphone gaming there’s Mobile Game Mode that optimizes and minimizes the latency over your Wi-Fi.

In the United States, the ROG Rapture GT-AX6000 will be released on December 10, and the router will cost $400. Details about the European release are unfortunately not yet available.
