ASUS Republic of Gamers today announced Rapture GT-AX6000, a high-performance WiFi 6 (802.11ax) gaming router with a striking all-new design. The ROG Rapture GT-AX6000 is a powerful 4×4 dual-band WiFi 6 router that delivers combined speeds of up to 6000 Mbps — 1148 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 4804 Mbps on the 5GHz band — which is up to 2.3X faster than a 4×4 dual-band WiFi 5 router. With a combination of 160 MHz channels, OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology, WiFi 6 provides up to 4X-greater network capacity and efficiency in traffic-dense environments, making it ideal for heavily populated networks.
The futuristic ROG Rapture GT-AX6000 gaming router lets gamers connect more devices, and upgrades their gaming experience to the next level. Powered by a 2.0 GHz 64-bit quad-core Broadcom CPU and flagship next-gen Broadcom WiFi 6 chipsets, it delivers wireless speeds up to 6000 Mbps with ASUS RangeBoost Plus for enhanced range, so it’s always primed for the biggest battles. Fully customizable ASUS Aura RGB lighting effects make the GT-AX6000 a router that demands to be seen.
Built for high-speed throughput to deliver more bandwidth to more devices, the GT-AX6000 features two 2.5 Gbps Ethernet ports, and the router supports both WAN and LAN aggregation. WAN aggregation allows a 2.5 Gbps port to be combined with a 1 Gbps port to unlock up to 3.5 Gbps of WAN bandwidth, fast enough for even the latest ultra-high-speed ISPs. This massive internet bandwidth can be shared via WiFi 6 or the second 2.5 Gbps port in LAN mode.
With LAN aggregation, users can bond two 1 Gbps LAN ports together to create a 2 Gbps LAN connection, great for supplying extra bandwidth to heavy-duty network devices such as a compatible NAS or desktop PC. The ROG GT-AX6000 plays great with any game consoles, including PS5, Xbox X and Nintendo Switch and PC. The all-new futuristic game-themed design features four detachable red-and-black antennas , and the ASUS Aura RGB lighting on the case is fully customizable with a range of cool effects.
