Linksys unveiled their new WRT32XB router this year during CES, and now the router which prioritizes gaming traffic from Xbox consoles is now available.

Noted as the first router designed to automatically detect any Xbox One, including the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X, the router essentially puts the console as the priority over any other gadget connected to its network, making high-speed gaming and video streaming on the Xbox One seamless, thanks to incorporating Rivet Network’s Killer Prioritization Engine (KPE).

The KPE identifies, prioritizes and accelerates Xbox network traffic from any Xbox One console, delivering lower ping times and optimizes online gaming. The KPE on the WRT32XB also protects Xbox gamers from extreme lag spikes at the router level and reduces peak ping by up to 65% on Xbox One consoles versus non-gaming routers.

For its specifications, the WRT32XB router boasts a 1.8 GHz Dual-Core ARM CPU, 802.11ac Wave 2 Dual-band 3×3 wireless radio, 256MB Flash and 512MB of DDR3 Memory, and 5-port Gigabit Ethernet switch with TCAM.

Priced at $249.99, you can purchase the Linksys WRT32XB at retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, and more, as well as via Linksys’ online store.
