ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 Gaming routers
ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 is the first ROG router designed specifically for gaming, featuring tri-band Wi?Fi, eight-port gigabit-LAN, and its own powerful PC-grade, 1.8GHz quad-core CPU to enable incredibly fast and responsive network gaming. GT-AC5300 also includes two ultra-fast USB 3.0 ports.
The new router benefits from a number of innovative features to make gaming easier, and gameplay faster and smoother than ever. Chief among the gamer-friendly is Gaming Center, which provides an instant overview of the gaming network, so players can see at a glance the current internet status and stability, know how many gaming devices are online and what apps or games they are running. Gaming Center also helps gamers to control their network easily, with many one-click options; and it also shows server ping speeds for popular games from all around the world.
GT-AC5300 is the first gaming router to offer users three levels of game acceleration. Two of the eight LAN ports are dedicated gaming ports that prioritize network traffic to devices connected to those specific ports. The router also has a Game Boost feature that works in conjunction with two dedicated gaming ports to prioritize gaming traffic for the best networking speeds, as well as individual speeds for each connected gaming device. Users also have the ability to set up a private gaming network, to accelerate the connection between the router and preferred game servers.
The Game Intrusion Prevention System (Game IPS) offers integrated security based on Trend Micro™ technology to provide robust front-line protection for gaming networks. Game IPS allows PC-based anti-virus and firewall software to be temporarily disabled during gaming sessions, freeing up CPU performance for improved gaming speeds — and preventing legitimate game traffic from being blocked.
