That’s not an alien spaceship. That’s ASUS’ gaming router, the ROG Rapture GT-AC5300. And its now available in select stores.
Designed for gaming, ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 looks like it jumped right out of a sci-fi movie (Tron maybe?). The device itself is huge, and has square shape and 8 antennas protruding from each side. It features tri-band AC5300 Wi-Fi with two separate 5GHz bands and a 2.4GHz band. It allows gamers to create a dedicated high-speed gaming Wi-Fi network by allocating one of the two 5GHz bands to gaming devices and leaving the other free for general use.
Under the hood, the GT-AC5300 is powered by a 64-bit 1.8GHz quad-core processor, offering enough power to handle most things thrown at it. The router also includes an eight-port gigabit-LAN switch for multiple wired gaming devices, as well as two USB 3.0 ports for high-speed access to files on USB storage.
GT-AC5300 also comes with RangeBoost, a combination of hardware and software that increases coverage, improving long-range throughput.
Price and Availability
All these features come at a cost. The ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 has a retail price of Php23,810. It will be initially available at Acenet, PC Dynamic, PC Hub, and PC Quarters.
