During the recent SXSW Gaming Expo, NETGEAR®, Inc. debuted one of their latest products. The global networking company has an entire line of Nighthawk Pro Gaming products to help enhance the gaming experience for users. They have been one of the leading providers for networking products for online games for many years, and have held their own in the market. Solidifying them as one of these leading providers, they’ve introduced the latest member of the family, the Nighthawk ® Pro Gaming XR300 WiFi Router. What set this router apart? It was created to decrease the lag time seen in previous models, focusing purely on helping to create the ultimate gaming experience and prevent unwanted lag that often plague users. All without breaking the bank.
You may be wondering how they were able to decrease the amount of lag. The device puts a high priority on putting out faster internet speeds. How would this affect lag? The faster the internet speed, the smoother the streaming and therefore minimizing the lag. If an online game isn’t able to process the material in the game quick enough, it is usually internet speeds that are to blame. In answer to this, Netgear added in Anti-Buffer Bloat (ABB) to help stabilize ping. Translating this tech talk for normal users, it basically creates a fast-pass on the highway that is gaming traffic.
The device comes armed with a 1ghz dual-core processor and three high-performance external antennas. These antennas help boost WiFi connectivity and performance. It also sports four Gigabit Ethernet ports that can support for 802.11 ac WiFi. The device was built on the DUMAOS platform, which allows users access to network tracking and customization. So if a user wants to turn down the downloading speeds on their mobile devices so they can use more space for their online gaming, they are able to do it on this platform.
While speed was the major priority, Netgear didn’t leave security out to the wind. They have included a built-in VPN support as well as WiFi encryption utilizing a 128-bit AES standard. In summary of all of that, the device is extremely safe and holds up Netgear’s already reputable safety networking devices. The XR300 is compatible with Xbox®, PlayStation®, Nintendo® Switch, PC, mobile devices, and more.
The XR300 will be released worldwide in April of 2019, with retail prices starting at $200. It has already received rave reviews from numerous sources such as IGN, PCGamer, CNET, TechRadar and more. Gamers will rejoice with the ability to game uninterrupted with this affordable WiFi Router.
