Consensus

our Verdict

Thanks to its powerful processor and advanced Wi-Fi 6 technology, the ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AX6000 router provides blistering data transfer speeds. The router’s extensive gaming-centric feature set, including a Game Boost Mode, makes it a solid choice for gamers. Parents will be pleased with its built-in parental controls, stable video streaming abilities, and  gaming traffic prioritization options.

However, the lack of Wi-Fi 6E support and the absence of tri-band Wi-Fi might deter some gamers. Consider our ASUS ROG GT-AX11000 Pro review if you want a tri-band option.
