Earlier this year, the Federal Communications Commission paved the way for a new generation of Wi-Fi connectivity Voting to open the 6GHz spectrum For unauthorized use. So now Meta Buffs start eventAsus announces the first router to support, leveraging its new Wi-Fi real estate Wi-Fi 6E transmission In that 6GHz band.

Specifically, the Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 is a high-end tri-band. Gaming router It will be released in December of this year. Like the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000, the previous router in the line-up, this new model features eight antennas with a modern, flashy design aimed at appealing to gamers, but with the model number “E. Adds support for Wi-Fi 6E as shown.

“Asus is a well-established leader in the networking market and first introduced the Wi-Fi 6 router,” the company said in a press release. “Today, Asus is enabling the wider bandwidth of Wi-Fi 6E and an increase in 160 MHz channels with the ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, the world’s first Wi-Fi 6E router.”

Pricing details have not yet been determined, but the previous Wi-Fi 6 The model is Still selling for $450, Don’t expect it to get cheaper when the GT-AX E11000 arrives.

A big advantage of Wi-Fi 6E support is that the device is accessible. A large band of relatively unused bandwidth In the 6GHz band. At 1200 MHz, it is more than twice as wide as the 5 GHz band, which allows for more and wider channels to pass traffic faster and more efficiently. It also acts as a semi-dedicated VIP section of the latest Wi-Fi gadgets available, as there are no legacy Wi-Fi devices in that band. This means less interference and better latency.

The GT-AXE11000 has a multi-giga LAN port that supports incoming wired speeds up to 2.5 Gbps and can aggregate two Gigabit WAN ports to achieve total speeds of up to 2 Gbps.

Earlier this year, Perry Corel, Extreme Networks Director of Product Marketing, who belongs to both the IEEE 11ax and Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi 6 task groups, said that Wi-Fi 6E connectivity Especially interesting for gamers At the cutting edge.

“AR/VR and games are another great use case for the 6GHz band,” Correll told CNET. “Some people don’t even notice that high end VR sets that require a lot of bandwidth are actually cabled. Wi-Fi 6E not only increases bandwidth, it also cleans bandwidth, You will be able to deliver higher data wirelessly. The rate you need with true mobility.”

In addition to supporting Wi-Fi 6E, the GT-AXE11000 has 1.8 GHz, 64-bit CPU, 1 GB RAM. Supports 4X4 Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, has a multi-giga LAN port for wired speeds up to 2.5Gbps, and combines receive speeds from two Ethernet WAN ports to enable WAN aggregation for wireless speeds up to 2Gbps I will. The router also uses “modern 6GHz power amplifiers” to improve signal strength and coverage. Does not move much in the 6GHz band..

Hopefully, in the coming weeks, you’ll find out more about this new gaming router, including how much it actually costs. If you have a chance to give it a try, I’ll let you know, so please be patient.
