Q) When designing a router that caters to gamers, do you favour form over functionality?
I’ll go with functionality any day as performance for a gaming router is paramount than form.
Q) What is the one thing a gamer should look for when zeroing in on a gamingfriendly router?
When you game at the highest settings, it’s imperative you have a router with great processing power. The gaming router should be able to deliver that to perfectly execute every move and application to eradicate latency and deliver smooth gameplay. A tri-band router would be my preferred choice for a gaming-friendly router.
Q) When the ping in a multiplayer match is bad, how much of an effect would a gaming router have on the network quality?
A 5GHz gaming router along with its powerful processor and strong wireless chipset will eliminate those ping issues while playing multiplayer, thus, enabling an uninterrupted gaming experience.
Q) Do tri-band routers make a noticeable difference in connectivity over their dual-band counterparts?
A tri-band router definitely delivers a better performance in terms of the Wi-Fi connectivity as we can dedicate a 5GHz band to deliver blistering fast Wi-Fi connectivity to the connected devices. MU-MIMO and Airtime Fairness is used to balance the requests of every device with speed and precision, distributing dedicated Wi-Fi streams to each device, leaving you to focus on taking down the opposition instead of fighting your allies for bandwidth.
Q) What’s your pick - PUBG or Fortnite?
It has to be PUBG for me, as it has more realistic graphics and gunfights, which creates a real war-like experience. I also like the fact it has multiple maps, character customisation, and reckless driving experience.
