Asus unveiled its ROG Rapture GT-BE98 router at CES 2023, which claims to be the world’s first quad-band WiFi 7 gaming router.
The router is equipped with a quad-core 2.6GHz processor, 2GB DDR4 RAM, 256MB flash memory, and supports 2.4GHz + dual 5GHz + 6GHz quad-band.
The router leverages the full potential of WiFi 7, which supports 320 MHz channel in the 6 GHz band, and claims to offer speeds 160 per cent faster than its predecessor. In addition, peak data rates can be increased by up to 20 percent, providing speeds of up to 25,000 Mbps (25Gbps), thanks to 4K QAM modulation, which bundles more data into transmission.
ROG Rapture GT-BE98 also supports Multi-Link Operation (MLO) and Multi-RU (Puncturing), which can provide more efficient and reliable wireless connection.
Specifically, multi-link operations allow simultaneous transmission across different frequency bands and channels to increase device throughput, reduce latency, and improve reliability. Multi-RU (Puncturing) divides the wide channel bandwidth into smaller units, so that the Puncturing can eliminate the interference of the remaining bandwidth and improve the efficiency.
iGeekphone has learned that ROG Rapture GT-BE98 comes with one 10 Gbps WAN/LAN network port and two 10 Gbps LAN ports, as well as four gigabit LAN ports, one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0 and more. Additionally, for gamers who live in large houses, the router comes with exclusive Asus RangeBoost Plus technology that improves signal range and overall coverage. In addition, the router has three levels of gaming acceleration, providing a great gaming experience.
