edited July 3 in Gaming

Today, we’re on a fast track to getting connected and respected in the world of online gaming. While we can’t give you the skills to pay the bills, we can provide you with the best hardware and software to make the most out of the games you play. Let’s face it, the glamorous world of OLED monitors and sexy GPUs might be higher up your list of priority gear, but let’s not forget the oft neglected gaming router. As you’ll find out in this article, buying the best gaming router you can get your hands on can benefit your gaming in more ways than one. 

Kitting yourself out with the best router for gaming, namely the Predator Connect W6x will enable smooth, immersive gameplay, as well as reliable, lightning fast Wi-Fi connectivity. While you’re presumably familiar with Wi-Fi, did you know that we’re currently somewhere in between the Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 7 generations? While you may think that being newer, Wi-Fi 7 must also be better, but it’s actually not quite as simple as it seems. In this article we’ll dish out the lowdown on Wi-Fi 6, and of course provide you with a decent overview of the Predator Connect W6x gaming router.

What is Wi-Fi 6?

Before we get stuck into the meat and potatoes of the Predator Connect W6x, let’s take a minute to look at the wireless technology it gets part of its name from: Wi-Fi 6. Short for Wireless Fidelity (Yes, a nod to Hi-Fi), Wi-Fi networks have been promoted and certified by the Wi-Fi alliance since 1999. Wi-Fi has been in our lives for over two and a half decades now, and like any great dynasty, successive generations of Wi-Fi have built upon the technology of their predecessors. Hint: it’s all about data transfer speed.

First released in 2019, Wi-Fi 6, as you may have guessed, offers faster, more efficient, and more reliable connectivity than Wi-Fi 5. Delivering speedier data rates of up to 9.6 Gbps (gigabits per second) against Wi-Fi 5’s 3.5 Gbps, Wi-Fi 6 supports higher bandwidth applications like online gaming. In addition to raw speed, increased capacity to handle multiple devices without performance drops and enhanced efficiency are both hallmarks of Wi-Fi 6. Let’s not overlook security: Wi-Fi 6 is armed with WPA3, the latest Wi-Fi security protocol for better encryption and defense against brute-force attacks.
