NETGEAR Unleashes Latest Pro Gaming Router
As online games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, and PubG have continued to gain tremendous popularity over the past few years, NETGEAR decided to unleash a product with the capacity to keep up with this craze that doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. During the SXSW Gaming Expo, the leading provider for online gaming showed off the Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR300 Wi-Fi Router. The new member of the Nighthawk Pro Gaming Family has been carefully designed to minimize ping and latency on Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo, Nintendo Switch, PCs and mobile devices.
“With more than 2.3 billion active gamers in the world, online gaming is truly becoming the world’s favorite pastime. As multiplayer online games grow in popularity, it’s known that latency kills. Our award-winning line of Pro Gaming routers, including the XR500 and the XR700, emerged very naturally as a response to the needs of the gaming community, who already favored our Nighthawk routers,” says David Henry, senior vice president of Connected Home Products for NETGEAR. “The XR300 is the latest addition to our NPG router lineup, and it ensures that every gamer is provided with a competitive edge to dominate their game, on their platform of choice.”
The XR300 boasts several key features that transform the online gaming experience including a purpose-built gaming dashboard powered by DumaOS, smooth streaming, and minimized lag with ultra-low ping rates. The non-gamers in the home will be able to appreciate the XR300 as well as it powers the whole home with high-performing Internet speeds.
