ASUS introduces world’s first Quad-band WiFi 6E gaming router

ROG Rapture GT-AXE16000


ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the market availability of the ROG Rapture GT-AXE16000, the world’s first quad-band WiFi 6E gaming router — a worthy successor to the previous game-changing tri-band model. ASUS continues to lead and innovate in networking hardware, transforming the landscape with a complete WiFi 6E ecosystem.

This trailblazing router — winner of a prestigious CES® 2022 Innovation Award — delivers incredible speeds of up to 16000 Mbps, and is powered by the latest flagship Broadcom 2.0 GHz quad-core 64-bit CPU and WiFi chipsets, along with ASUS RangeBoost Plus technology for enhanced coverage. Designed for gaming in true style, the boldly designed GT-AXE16000 has an infinity mirror on the top of the case that adds a unique touch to the multiple Aura RGB lighting effects.

For the ultimate wired versatility, GT-AXE16000 features dual 10 Gbps WAN/LAN ports, a 2.5 Gbps WAN ports, and four 1 Gbps LAN ports.

The quad-band configuration — which requires much more complex engineering to achieve than a tri-band solution — has one 6 GHz, two 5 GHz and one 2.4 GHz frequency band. This configuration enables much more flexible ASUS AiMesh options: for example, it allows gamers to dedicate the second 5 GHz channel to backhaul connections while still having a complete set of 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands available for devices.

With triple-level game acceleration, VPN Fusion for running a VPN and ordinary connection simultaneously, free ASUS AiProtection Pro advanced security, and Instant Guard for securing public WiFi connections, the GT-AXE16000 is the no-compromise router choice for serious gamers.
