PCGamer pit the XR500 versus some other great gamer-focused routers in the industry and the XR500 came out on top!
"The Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500 is the best gaming router for most users. It features AC2600 speeds (N800/AC1733), a dual core 1.7 GHz processor, dual USB 3.0 ports, Beamforming and MU-MIMO. It also uses Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS), which adds fifteen additional unlicensed channels on the 5 GHz frequency to minimize interference."
PCGamer went on to say:
The Netduma OS in the XR500 offers a number of innovations, including Geo-filtering—which allows a radius to be set (typically <3000 km), after which the router will preferentially connect to the closest gaming server—as well as Bandwidth Allocation that allows for granular control of prioritization of gaming devices. Finally, there is robust QoS for prioritization of gaming traffic.
