Gamers need lag-free gaming if they want that advantage over their competition and the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) is about to make their claim for the best WiFi router for the gaming community. Sporting WiFi 6E, a 1.8 GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU with 1 GB RAM, and designed for heat dissipation, the ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 will be hard to beat.

The ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 features the brand new WiFi 6E band, so you’ll have 3x the bandwidth than the 5GHz band while adding up to seven 160 MHz frequency bands to the two available in the existing WiFi 6 standard.  WiFi 6E also offers hugely expanded device capacity, lower latency, as well as being dedicated solely to WiFi 6E devices.

The Rapture is engineered for performance, featuring a quad-core CPU that allows parallel processing when handling data from multiple high-performance devices.  The distance between the motherboard and the antennas is minimized, which reduces power loss and improves coverage.  The crown-shaped antenna design provides optimal signal coverage in all directions using its 8 antennas.

We all know that heat can kill performance, so ASUS ROG designed the GT-AXE11000 for efficient heat dissipation, featuring extra thermal solder points on the board, precision cut-outs in component shielding to make room for thermal padding, and a large aluminum heatsink to improve heat transfer and performance.  The case is also specially designed with vents on the top and sides to align perfectly with the internal heatsink.

I'm an architect by trade, but the overarching theme of my life has always been trying to keep up with the newest, coolest technology. Ever since I picked up an NES controller, I've been hooked on the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos, and toys. Whether it's gaming, mobile phones, and accessories, or PCs and Apple products, I'm interested. I use many Apple products in my daily life, such as the iPhone, iPad, and my MacBook Pro. I've also built a few PCs in my day, so I'd like to say that I'm a pretty well-rounded techie.
