ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AC2900 Wireless Router Review
It's a gaming router from ASUS ROG that won't break the bank, but how does it perform? Networking for games is about more than just raw throughput. You also want the lowest latency possible, as well as the ability to prioritise gaming traffic over other applications that make use of the network. As a result we have seen a number of gaming-focused broadband routers hit the market over the last few years. Latest to arrive on the testing bench is the ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AC2900. Alongside a raft of features, its gaming cred is ratified by being an ‘NVIDIA GeForce Now Recommended Router’.

The underlying hardware is dual-band and ASUS claims AC2900 performance. This is made up of up to 750Mbits/sec of 2.4GHz performance plus 2,167Mbits/sec at 5GHz. But this is thanks to support for 1,024QAM, which requires client devices supporting this as well. So normally the maximum bandwidth will be 450Mbits/sec and 1,733Mbits/sec respectively. The GT-AC2900 has three external antennas that are used both for 2.4GHz and 5GHz, with a single internal antenna for additional 5GHz support.
