  1. ASUS already has gaming oriented routers.... I... uhh... have one at home.
    They could have just as easily made them... more reservedly-designed home routers, but they instead make what sells at higher margins. Sadly, the split between 'gaming' and anything equivalent at the SOHO level is pretty drastic at the pricing, configuration, and deployment levels.

    Is this gonna be like gaming-oriented routers and gaming-oriented NICs and such?

    It's not even that - it's the 'PlayStation 5' compatibility being leveraged for PC gaming marketing.

    Given that the PlayStation compatibility does require a certain level of performance, it's not even really a bad thing, IMO.
