Netgear’s latest gaming router, the Nighthawk XR1000 Pro Gaming Wi-Fi 6, is the leading Wi-Fi solutions-provider’s newest addition to its superior portfolio. The Nighthawk XR1000 is powered by a triple core 1.5GHz processor, and is powerful enough to handle heavy loads of 4K streaming, VR Gaming, and much more.
The Nighthawk XR1000 operates with a Wi-Fi 6 speed of up to 5.4 Gbps and it allows multiple users to connect and stream simultaneously, without lag or slow buffers, being reliable all the way through efficient packing and scheduling of data.
