TP-Link today is announcing a brand-new gaming router called the Archer GX90. The company says it’ll help gamers stay immersed in their games. Regardless of the type of game they play and what activity is being completed at the time.
In a slightly more detailed description, TP-Link says the Archer GX90 gaming router is capable of “defeating latency to ensure your gaming stays immersive.” It’ll also help you “crush lag,” thanks to a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU that’s designed to handle more throughput. The tri-band, Wi-Fi 6 capable router promises speeds up to 6,579 Mbps. With a dedicated gaming band aimed at optimizing your games to make for the best experience.
Plus, TP-Link says everything can be managed rather easily through a user-friendly suite of controls in the companion app. The router has 8-beamforming antennas designed to eliminate dead spots and handle your gaming needs all on its lonesome.
However, it’s also compatible with TP-Link’s OneMesh system. So if you set everything up and you still have dead zones, you can attempt to expand your coverage by linking the GX90 to any OneMesh range extender.
The Archer GX90 gaming router automatically detects when you’re playing
There are a few standout features of this router. Starting with the Gaming Accelerator. This is the router’s ability to detect when you’re playing games and optimize that activity. The idea being to ensure your gaming sessions stay fast thanks to a low-latency connection. Which in turn would lead to your sessions essentially feeling more immersive.
While you’ll need a lot more than a good internet connection to stay immersed in your gameplay, a good internet connection is a good place to start. And the Archer GX90’s entire design is built around trying to provide that as seamlessly as possible.
After all, less latency can mean a smoother gameplay experience. Which can then help prevent you from breaking your focus away from the game. In addition to the Gaming Accelerator feature, the router also has a dedicated gaming band to help keep your gaming in tip-top shape.
It uses 4T4R and HE160 technology, while also delivering speeds up to 4,804 Mbps. It’s also capable of preventing other devices on the network from interfering with the gaming connection. So by setting up things like your gaming PC and consoles on this band, gaming can be more easily configured to take priority over any other types of traffic.
Check real-time stats on your gaming habits
The GX90 seems equipped to make your gaming sessions as good as they can be. You can even see real-time statistical data on your gaming sessions. Including how long you played, how much real-time latency you had, and how much of your system resources your games are using.
On top of all that TP-Link notes that the UI elements are designed help to make things user-friendly. More easily allowing users to stay on top of network resource allocation. The TP-Link Archer GX90 is available for sale starting today. It retails for $250, and can be picked up through Amazon and other retailers.
