Asus has already unleashed routers with heavy ROG branding and the gaming-friendly features one might expect as a result; now, the OEM has gone one further with a new mesh system. The GT6's modules packs a new antenna array, tri-band Wi-Fi 6 support and the potential for blazing-fast speeds into a distinctly Rapture-series design.

Asus ROG has already made routers for gamers; now, it has done the same with mesh networking. Therefore, those who want or need to surround themselves with extenders can do so with devices one would hardly recognize as having such a use-case with the Rapture GT6 system.

The GT6 has come to Gamescom 2022 alongside the Rapture GT-AXE16000 (previously released as "the world’s first quad-band WiFi 6E gaming router") to flaunt the Aura RGB logos, emphatic ventilation and “For Those Who Dare” logos that adorns each GT6 mesh node.

Like the GT-AXE16000, the system rocks "exclusive" Asus RangeBoost Plus technology for the complement of 9 "powerful" internal antennae found in each of its modules, each of which has some freedom of movement within the chassis to pick up signal. The array is also touted as "smart" with the ability to optimize signal distribution per connected device as it is received in this manner.

Accordingly, Asus is confident that the Rapture GT6's twin nodes can bring the online to any game from up to up to 5800 square feet away at a rate of up to 1,0000 Mb/s over up to 10 streams of tri-band Wi-Fi 6.

The OEM estimates that it will be released to North America in the third quarter of 2022 in black or Moonlight White and at a currently recommended price of US$599.
