In short: Razer Sila was announced on Tuesday, and it is the company's first router. And as you might have guessed, this router is all about gaming performance. It is essentially a Mesh router that will optimize your WiFi network to offer the best gaming experience on PC, Mobile and Console. It is a Tri-Band AC3000 router, with 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, the 2.4GHz band tops out at 400 Mbps, while the 5GHz band tops out at 866 Mbps. There are also nine powerful, high-grain internal antennas here, so unlike some other gaming routers, you don't have antennas going every which way. Allowing the Razer Sila to look nice and clean. There is also the Razer FasTrack Adaptive QoS + DPI Engine included, Multichannel ZeroWait DFS, Multi-user MIMO and Beamforming Technology, and intelligent active steering. There are four gigabite Ethernet ports on the back, as well as a USB 2.0 and a USB 3.0 port.
Background: It should come as no surprise that Razer's first router is one that is made specifically for better gaming. And that is because Razer's whole motto is "for gamers, by gamers", so everything that Razer does, has to do with gaming. That is even true with its smartphones – which is debuting next week. So for Razer to put out a router that makes gaming even better, is definitely what you would expect from Razer. Though, perhaps unexpected here, is the fact that there are no RGB lights on the router. There is the triple-headed snake logo on the top which is green, but otherwise, it's a matte-black box that is a router.
Impact: Razer is going to be selling Sila for around $249 in the US, and €299 in Europe. The Razer Sila is available today worldwide, and you can pick it up at the link down below. Whether you are a gamer or not and are in need of a router for your home, this is definitely the one to pick up. As you likely won't find a router that offers better performance than the Sila.
