Breaking the Mold of "Gaming" Routers

Poor Networking Can Ruin Your Game

You have a great battlestation, why are you killing its performance with a weak network? Get rid of the clutter of your local network and connect to the closest servers to reduce your lag by 93%*!

Is Your Wi-Fi Hurting Your Game?

If you are not playing with hardware that's designed for gaming and gamers, the answer is probably 'yes'. Application Quality of Service (QoS) doesn't just prioritize a device, but a whole genre of traffic. Prioritize gaming on the downstream and live-streaming on the upstream. Backed by a 1.5 GHz Tri-core processor, the XR1000 prioritizes even the most congested home networking traffic. That means you'll stay in the game with more wins.

Powerful Tri-core Processor

Powerful processor supports more devices for better VR gaming, 4K streaming, surfing and more while boosting your wireless, wired, and USB performance.

Wi-Fi 6 AX5400 Dual Band
