Gaming w00ter, worth it?

Currently I use an ASUS RT-AC68U.

It's a great bit of kit and never drops a wireless connection. It is however under a considerable strain as at times there's x4 wired devices vying for a slice as well as ~ 10 to 12 wireless devices.

The QoS works to a decent degree but I'm thinking of upgrading.

Really want a quad core CPU to handle all the traffic. Was wondering though what the general consensus on gaming routers such as the Nighthawk XR 500 or the ASUS ROG GT AC2900.

 

I know the ASUS can handle better throughput on the WLAN but was wondering what of the two is better at game packet prioritisation.  

Is the NETDUMA OS better or the ASUS built in WTFAST routing?

 

There would x3 gaming rigs connected by wire and x3 Nintendo Switch and x2 PS4 not all on at the same time but at least three of the mix at one time.

 

Opinions welcome.

Thx.

Well, it sure is a hive of activity around here.

 

To think of the amazing gaming community of Blueyonder way back.

Most people coming to the forums are people wanting to complain most of the time, so the number of people who are going to watch the gaming lounge isn't going to be high, plus the gaming lounge has been quiet for a long time.

Majide!

Better off asking on OCUk forums.

I've recently bought an Umbiquiti Edge Router and its great (wired only)
