AI Networking

The proprietary ROG GameFirst VI utility is designed to help all users — beginners, experts, and everyone in between — optimise network settings to ensure smooth online gameplay. New to this generation, GameFirst VI features AI-enhanced identification and boost technology to ensure faster and smarter network optimisation.

How It Works

Identification

GameFirst VI analyzes your usage patterns and the digital signatures of your applications and compares them to a database of over 200,000 apps. The database is regularly updated to ensure that apps are recognised.

Boost

GameFirst VI intelligently switches application priority and adjusts bandwidth accordingly, depending on the situation. When gaming, it accelerates and prioritises game packets to give you supersmooth online gameplay — even when you're streaming high-quality video to your audience or transferring large files.

Visualisation

An intuitive graph gives you an overview of the network in real-time. Simply click on the tab to view current bandwidth usage of each application, geolocation status of each network connection, and an analysis of each WiFi channel.

WHAT IT DOES

ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENCE

GameFirst VI analyzes current app usage and adjusts bandwidth accordingly to ensure smoother online experiences, even when multitasking.

GAMING FIRST MODE

Gaming First mode leverages a massive application database and an analysis of your frequently used apps to prioritise gaming network traffic. This reduces jitter and decreases ping to give you lag-free online gaming.

Network Insight

WiFi Quick Assist analyzes network information — including real-time bandwidth use — to generate a graph that provides a clear overview of current network status. When paired with a ROG router, WiFi Quick Assist lets you quickly scan your WiFi network to find the best channel; then, you can use Game Boost to prioritise gaming devices and packets.

LEADING CONNECTIVITIY

ROG Strix B460-G Gaming provides you with the latest connectivity for supersmooth online experiences and blisteringly fast file transfers. Superior audio performance gives you a massive advantage, allowing you to pick up on the smallest audio cues for a completely immersive gaming experience.
