Up your game and your home's Wi-Fi coverage with the ROG Rapture GT-AC2900 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Gaming Router from ASUS. If you're a gamer and demand the lowest pings and latency to get an edge, then the Rapture can help with triple-level game acceleration. The GT-AC2900 also supports the future of gaming by being NVIDIA-certified as a GeForce NOW device. GeForce NOW is NVIDIA's cloud-based game streaming platform for Windows-based PCs, Macs, and Shields.

The dual-band Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) Rapture is also engineered to increase the Wi-Fi coverage in your home. Supporting ASUS's AiMesh technology, you can set it up as your main router and utilize older AiMesh-compatible routers as Wi-Fi nodes around the home. The Rapture offers significant coverage on its own with three external antennas and dual-band MU-MIMO support. You can utilize 3x3 MU-MIMO at 2.4 GHz to optimize range, or go 4x4 MU-MIMO to maximize speed and accommodate an extra connected device.

The Rapture offers many other features to help maximize your speed and overall internet experience, such as gigabit link aggregation, dual-WAN support, beamforming, easy NAT setup, AiProtection Pro network security, parental controls, and more. To top it off, the Republic of Gaming Rapture GT-AC2900 lets you show your style with RGB lighting and effects.

Triple-Level Game Acceleration

Level 1: One of the router's four gigabit Ethernet ports is a dedicated gaming port for your gaming device of choice. Once plugged in, the router ensures its traffic is always a priority
Level 2: Utilizing Game Boost, an adaptive QoS, all of the gaming traffic is prioritized for increased speeds
Level 3: Using a free edition of GPN (Gamers Private Network) that's powered by wtfast, the router can help ensure your traffic takes the shortest path to the game service. This can lead to drastic decreases in both ping and latency.

Whole-Home Mesh Wi-Fi Coverage

Getting the Rapture GT-AC2900 doesn't mean you have to throw away your existing router. Compatible with ASUS's AiMesh technology, you can plug in other AiMesh-compatible routers to act as Wi-Fi nodes around your house. Nodes closest to the Rapture can boost the signal to other nodes and areas of your home where the Rapture might not be able to reach, allowing devices in those locations to wirelessly access the internet.

3-Step Port Forwarding with Open NAT

The Rapture GT-AC2900 provides you with a 3-step process to more easily set up port forwarding for consoles and games. All you have to do is select the game and the device. With Open NAT, you can chat, play, or host with people that have any NAT type. You can also select Moderate NAT or Strict NAT for increased restrictions.

AiProtection Pro & Network Security

AiProtection Pro technology is powered by Trend Micro and is engineered to neutralize network attacks before they can reach your connected devices. In addition to attack protection, it can detect and block infections and block access to malicious websites. You can also set up various parental controls and restrictions. Restrict internet access on a specific schedule, block categories of mobile apps and websites, filter content, and more. An Internet Activity Dashboard lets you monitor stats and create rules for specific members of your family.

Additional Features

AiRadar Beamforming: Technology designed to focus your Wi-Fi signal to active consoles and devices for increased speed.
RangeBoost: Boosts signal for up to 120% wide coverage.
Game Radar: Lets you check pings to multiple servers before you play and select the best option.
VPN Fusion: Run a VPN and regular internet connection simultaneously, so your gaming doesn't slow down and other devices stay protected over the VPN.
ROG Gaming Center: Software that gives you point-and-click control over the router's many features
ASUS Router App: Run a network diagnostic with one click, set up port forwarding, limit bandwidth of connected devices, and more.
