If you wanted an insane-looking router with an almost as-insane boast, then say hello to ASUS' new router. Touting it as the best for gaming, 4K streaming and smart home networking, the RT-AC5300 will apparently deliver speeds that are 67 percent faster than first-gen, tri-band routers. In particular, ASUS is promising up to 1 Gbps connections over 2.4GHz and up to 2.167 Gbps on each of the two 5GHz bands, and is calling this the world's fastest WiFi. In short: Google just got a new router challenger.
