Triple-Level Game Acceleration - Exclusive to ASUS Rapture GT-AC5300 Only

Some understanding what is Triple-Level Game Acceleration





Acceleration Level 1: Gaming Ports Connect a PC or laptop to the dedicated Gaming ports (LAN 1 or 2). For handheld (mobile) games, connect your wireless device to Wi-Fi SSID: ASUS_XX_5G_gaming. (Note: XX refers to the last two digits of the 2.4 GHz MAC address)

Acceleration Level 2: Game Boost Log into the ROG Gaming Center and enable the Game Boost function. Path: ROG Gaming Center => Game Boost

Acceleration Level 3: Game Private Network Path: ROG Gaming Center => Game Private Network
Create an WTFast account for free. Visit: https://www.wtfast.com/

From ASUS TW testing, they are able to achieve lower latency over several games even their Fiber Internet connectivity bandwidth is > 80% saturation.

I have yet to verify the information out neither have try it out as impeding PC parts incoming + overhauling my rig setup.

There is fourth acceleration which is enabled by default. It's called Runner (Hardware NAT acceleration with Flow Cache)





You guys can try it out whether the triple-level gaming acceleration works for you.

Maylyn is a local networking expert and is also testing the product in collaboration with Asus Taiwan.

This model will also feature the rubber bunk at the antenna area so that a slight knock will not loosen the antenna. One thing existing users hate.

I can't wait! Did you get this at the IT Show? Hoping the price will go down a little without the freebies

Both cannot be compared on the same level. One is filled with enterprise solution while another is a gaming router. How to compare?

If u are looking at solely wifi performance, don't worry, both will give the same quality of performance.

How's this router compared to Brt ac828?
