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.
