At CES 2023, ASUS has taken their networking technology to the next level, successfully transitioning from WIFI 6E to WIFI 7, securing a significant uplift in wireless networking performance. 

With the move to WIFI 7 comes the introduction of two new ASUS gaming routers, the quad-bandROG Rapture GT-BE98 and the tri-band ASUS RT-BE96U, both of which are due to launch later this year.

Both of these new routers feature multiple 10Gb ethernet ports, a powerful 2.6 GHz quad-core processor and ASUS' exclusive RangeBoost technology. On the high-end, ASUS' Rapture GT-BE98 features three 10Gb Ethernet ports while the more moderate ASUS RT-BE96U features two 10Gb ethernet ports.

In total, the ROG Rapture GT-BE98 can offer users 25,000 Mbps of aggregate bandwidth, with the RT-BE96U offering 19,000 MB/s of aggregate bandwidth with its 6GHz, 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands. 

   Unprecedented bandwidth for gaming, entertainment, and much more

For CES 2023, we’re breaking ground with two WiFi 7 routers: the ROG Rapture GT-BE98 and the ASUS RT-BE96U. WiFi 7 technologies let these wireless routers deliver a revolutionary networking experience. 

With up to 11,525 Mbps on the 6GHz band, 5,762 Mbps on each of its two 5GHz bands, and 1,376 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band, the quad-band GT-BE98 offers a staggering 25,000 Mbps of aggregate bandwidth for unparalleled gaming experiences. The tri-band RT-BE96U, on the other hand, offers up to 11,525 Mbps on its 6Hz band, 5,762 Mbps on its 5GHz band, and 1,376 Mbps on its 2.4GHz band for a massive aggregate bandwidth of 19,000 Mbps.  

Both routers are powered by potent quad-core 2.6 GHz processors, and the GT-BE98 features three 10 Gb LAN ports (two LAN and one WAN/LAN) to handle the heaviest network traffic, while the RT-BE96U features a pair of 10 Gb ports. Enjoy expanded signal coverage and range through ASUS-exclusive RangeBoost Plus technology. The ROG Rapture GT-BE98 offers triple-level game acceleration that enhances connections from the local network all the way to a game server anywhere in the world. 

  Much more to come 

As with every generation of WiFi technology, you’ll need both a WiFi 7 router and WiFi 7-compatible devices to take full advantage of everything that the new standard has to offer. The ROG Rapture GT-BE98 and ASUS RT-BE96U prep you to hit the ground running as soon as WiFi 7 client devices hit shelves near you. We have many more announcements to make regarding WiFi 7 and our product lineup, including our ZenWiFi series, so stay tuned for the latest news.

Sadly, ASUS has not revealed the pricing or planned availability of their new ROG Rapture GT-BE98 and ASUS RT-BE96U gaming routers, though we expect them both to release sometime this year.

With their new WIFI 7 routers, ASUS customers will be able to hit the ground running with ultra-fast WIFI 7 speeds as soon as compatible devices hit store shelves. As 2023 progresses, we expect ASUS to make more WIFI 7 announcements, both across the company's broader networking portfolio as well as the company's PC component, systems and laptop product lines.
