Unboxing ROG Rapture GT-BE98 Quad-band WiFi 7 (802.11be) Gaming Router

WiFi 7 is FINALLY HERE: ROG Rapture GT-BE98!

Setup and Speed Test - Asus BE98 WiFi 7 Router

The system can be described in one word: Colossal

This speed is crazy!

For me, this is a real flagship. I am looking forward to the development of this router and to the development of devices with Wi-Fi 7.

This PC does NOT have cables ****

We've got Wifi 7, we're ready! The new 420mm heatsink and what tempered glass can also be used for

WiFi 7 (IEEE 802.11be) packs all the benefits of WiFi 6/6E and expands several existing WiFi standards to a whole new level, such as 320 MHz bandwidth and 4K-QAM. And it introduces some revolutionary features like Multi-Link Operation. These combined technologies provide beyond fast speeds, extremely low latency and enhanced reliability. You can enjoy unparalleled network experiences in any online battlefield.

    with new 320 MHz bandwidth
  • Up to
    1.2x Transmission
    with enhanced 4K-QAM
  • Ultimate Quad-band Speeds

    The ROG Rapture GT-BE98 is designed for gamers who want to keep multiple devices connected and still get incredible gaming performance. Enjoy up to sixteen simultaneous WiFi streams for more video streaming, gaming, and browsing for everyone in your home.

  • Ultrawide 320 MHz Bandwidth

    WiFi 7 introduces all-new ultrawide 320 MHz channel bandwidth, doubling data transmission capacity. Think of networking as a virtual freeway and the doubled bandwidth as a doubling of the number of lanes. Now larger vehicles are allowed to get on the freeway and can pack more data than ever before.

    • 320 MHz

    • 160 MHz

  • High-density 4096-QAM Data Transmission

    4K-QAM can improve data transmission rates versus WiFi 6/6E by up to 20%, because a higher QAM can pack signals more densely. Continuing with the freeway analogy, now higher QAM permits more merchandise to be loaded into every vehicle. In other words, you can now upload and download more data in the same time frame as before.

    • 4096-QAM

      12 bits/symbal

    • 1024-QAM

      10 bits/symbal

  • Revolutionary Multi-link Operation

    Multi-Link Operation (MLO) allows a device to simultaneously connect on multiple frequency bands, enabling faster speeds by aggregating bandwidth, with more reliable WiFi connections on multiple concurrently used bands. Connecting to multiple bands in this manner also enables “seamless switching” where your data will automatically be allocated to the most suitable band to reduce latency.
