    The ASUS Rapture GT-AC5300 gaming went on sale a week or so ago, the flagship ASUS 802.11ac Gaming Router offers network prioritizing and really is a small computer all by itself....

    I don't understand. If you want to buy these G4MinG craps and tune last milliseconds away from ping, why you would use Wifi at all? Buy cheaper router and use wire - prob works better.

    Wired will always be superior to Wireless. Why would consumers prefer this? No need to wire. Lazy consumers enabling these products.

    or the fact that you can't just run cables through a rental property walls.

    Because just like with audio people don't care, they are all to lazy and rather use inferior tech that makes life a bit easier while sacrificing quality.

    What's your ping to your router? Less than 1ms? Mine too, weird.

    The differences between the input lag on various wired mice, various monitors, the jitter in your line, if you slept well last night, everything, almost every other factor will be orders of magnitude more impactful than if you're wired or not.

    Nope because all that will still impact your latency on top of wireless. Plus when I'm moving files quickly and reliably over my 10GbE connection like a boss you're going to be too busy picking up the corpses of the dead halves of people that turned into documents moving through your 60ghz vaporization cancer zone.

    That first part is only valid if you're also sought to reduce the latency on every other point. Otherwise, you're just making absurd blanket statements about how people with wireless don't care about latency while you're missing entire frames.

    There is a reason why I bought a $800+ monitor with the lowest input lag, read a 10,000 page document on blur blusters on how to configure G-Sync for optimal latency, bought one of the lowest latency mice and take a multivitamin daily to decrease the synapse time across my neural pathways. I've even considered removing portions of my spine, shortening the distance between my brain and hand. The only thing that impedes my path is the latency of light.

    Lol - obviously wifi is fine for gaming - high end wifi solutions actually have more bandwidth than the average wired solution. The stigma of WiFi ended probably when wireless N came out, but definitely when AC launched. I'll always prefer a wire but the idea that you can't use wireless for gaming is dumb.

    my issue is...the more asus want their routers to be noticed, the more i want to hide them.;)
    it's a nicer view looking at a baboon's butt.
    great products though.

    You can easly get over 100mbps on wifi with perfect latency .
