Linksys WRT32X: gaming router to reduce ping by up to 77 percent

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 | Gadgets

At the games fair Gamescom 2017, Linksys introduced the WRT32X. This router is aimed at gamers and is to score points with features like the killer prioritization engine and the graphical user interface. The device has four WLAN antennas and automatically prioritizes the traffic of games against other services on the network.

These measures are designed to reduce the ping important to players. Linksys is talking about a reduction in the Lag tips by up to 77 percent. In a computing example, a latency of 74 milliseconds was reduced to 17 milliseconds. The requirement is, however, that the client PC has installed a killer network card, which is available as a dedicated PCI Express card, on mainboards or in some pre-configured PC systems, such as Alienware, MSI or Razer.
Standard hardware also for non-gamers
The WRT32X operates in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz dual band and is certified for Dynamic Frequency Selection. It supports the WLAN standard 802.11ac and multi-user MIMO. For players rather interesting are the LAN sockets. The router has five RJ45 jacks with gigabit speed. In addition, external drives can be connected via USB 3.0 and a combined eSATA and USB 2.0 port. The product can read storage media formatted in the FAT, NTFS, and HFS + file systems.

The router has a two-core processor with 1.8 GHz clock frequency and 512 MB of memory available to manage network devices and traffic. It is configured via a specially adapted user interface in the browser and is prepared for the Linux distribution Openwrt.

The WRT32X can be pre-ordered from September 2017, according to Linksys. It costs 330 euros. From October, first devices will be delivered. Pre-buyers are to receive as a bonus a Razer Kraken Pro V2 headset worth 90 euros when they order the device in selected shops.
