Triple-Level Game Acceleration
Level 1: Optimized Gaming Ports
ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 provides two gaming LAN ports that are optimized for gaming devices. All traffic on these ports is given top priority, so your gaming devices — or any other devices you want to connect to these ports — are always at the head of the internet queue!
Level 2: Game Boost
Game Boost analyzes network traffic and prioritizes gaming packets, giving games a second level of acceleration for the best possible performance. Game Boost can be activated instantly with a single click on the Gaming Center dashboard, and it supports many popular consoles, including PS3™, PS4™, PS4™ Pro, PlayStation® Vita , Wii U™, Nintendo 3DS™ and Xbox One®
Level 3: Gamers Private Network
ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 includes built-in support for the Gamers Private Network®, powered by WTFast®, which provides private, optimized internet connections to game servers¹, minimizing ping and latency to ensure smooth, lag-free gaming.
FORTIFIED FRONTLINE NETWORK SECURITY
To defend your network, ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 features Game IPS(Intrusion Prevention System), a state-of-the-art intrusion prevention system powered by Trend Micro™ technology. It protects your gaming network from external attacks and threats, neutralizing them before they can reach your network or devices. Even if your PC's security software isn't turned on — to get around blocked games, for example — Game IPS still protects your network from attacks and intrusions, giving you added peace of mind.
SIMULTANEOUS GAMING AND VPN
If you're fed up with virtual private networks dragging down game performance, ROG has the answer. ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 has a killer feature called VPN Fusion, which lets you run a VPN and an ordinary internet connection — simultaneously! So even if other network users need to use a VPN, you can still enjoy maximum gaming speeds.
YOUR OWN GAMING WI-FI BAND!
Have you ever dreamed of having a Wi-Fi router just for gaming? Dream no longer: With the tri-band ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 you can easily allocate one of the two 5GHz bands to gaming devices, while other devices use the second 5GHz band or the 2.4GHz band. And for playing VR games and streaming 4K UHD videos, its WAN-to-LAN speeds of up to 1900Mbps make GT-AC5300 the winning choice for everyone!
ROG knows exactly what top gamers need: ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 is built for full-on gaming action with hardware that's ready to meet the toughest challenges. Eight gigabit LAN ports provide the connections you need for all of your gaming devices, and two USB 3.0 ports give you high-speed access to files on USB storage. Hardcore NAS enthusiasts will appreciate the Link Aggregation feature that lets you team two LAN ports together into a single blisteringly fast 2Gbps connection*.
EXTREME 1.8GHZ QUAD-CORE POWER
The ultimate router needs the ultimate processing power, so ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 is powered by a top-of-the-line 1.8GHz 64bit quad-core CPU that puts many desktop processors to shame. It offers more than enough power to handle anything you can throw at it, without skipping a beat — whether it's maximizing the WAN/LAN throughput for online gaming, supercharging USB data transfers, or powering your team's LAN party.
BUILT FOR WI-FI FREEDOM!
Wi-Fi is great, but not if it dies or slows down before it reaches your favorite gaming spot. To achieve the freedom you deserve, ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 features RangeBoost, a powerful range-enhancing combination of hardware and software that increases coverage while also significantly improving long-range throughput! At last, you decide where to play — instead of your router!
POWERFUL WHOLE-HOME WI-FI SYSTEM. THE WAY YOU WANT.
In most cases, your ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 can deliver smooth, reliable Wi-Fi to every part of your home. But Wi-Fi coverage can be affected by many factors — room layout, construction materials, and even furnishings. ASUS AiMesh is an innovative new router feature that fixes these problems: it creates a whole-home Wi-Fi network using multiple ASUS routers. AiMesh is powerful, flexible and you can use a mix of ASUS router models — protecting your investment! AiMesh gives you time-saving central control, and seamless roaming capability. AiMesh is Wi-Fi you can rely on — for all your devices, all the time!
