Razer recently released a WiFi router that is geared towards gamers – the RAZER SILA Gaming Grade WiFi Router.

The Razer Sila is built with features such as Razer FasTrack, Multi-Channel ZeroWait DFS, dual algorithm Hybrid Wireless Mesh, mobile management and more. It’s now available for an MSRP of $249.99 and you can get one on Razer.com here. You can check out more of the Razer Sila’s features and specifications below.

Razer Sila – “Fastest Gaming Grade WiFi Router for PC, Console and Mobile”

Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the Razer Sila, a high-performance WiFi router designed for home users requiring WiFi service optimized for high-performance gaming, streaming and downloading multimedia content.

With the upsurge in mobile gaming, and with many homes unable to run a wired network to every room, fast and reliable WiFi is more important than ever. The Razer Sila router is designed to deliver lag-free gaming and smooth, interruption-free streaming over a fast wireless network, meeting the needs of today’s mobile, console and laptop users.

The Razer Sila features a suite of technologies designed to give gamers the fastest, most reliable WiFi connection within their home or office with Razer FasTrack, Multi-Channel ZeroWait DFS and Mesh capability with a dedicated backhaul. Setup and management through a mobile app makes Sila installation and use simple and quick.

The Razer FasTrack software featured in the Razer Sila is a proprietary QoS engine for smart traffic management. By using deep packet inspection and adaptive learning technology, Razer FasTrack allows users to prioritize traffic based on application and device types, from mobile phones and smart TVs through to laptops, PCs or consoles. With built-in detection for PlayStation, Xbox and Switch consoles, users can easily fine tune their networks for the smoothest gaming or streaming experiences. Razer FasTrack also features a one-touch gaming mode, to automatically reserve bandwidth for online gaming.

“We are constantly achieving new performance heights with our hardware and software,” notes Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “But high precision and low latency can be rendered useless if the WiFi drops. So we took the next step to develop a strong foundation for our ecosystem; with WiFi that just works no matter where you are.”

The patented Multi-Channel Zero-Wait DFS technology in the Razer Sila enables clean WiFi channels to avoid network traffic and maintain the highest speeds for the most demanding applications, without the susceptibility to downtime, hanging and disconnection.

The Razer Sila router is also capable of advanced mesh networking. Two or more Razer Sila units can be combined to provide smooth, fast, WiFi coverage across areas up to 6,000 square feet with two units or multi-storey locations over 6,000 square feet with three units. As a Tri-Band router Razer Sila features a dedicated 5 GHz backhaul and independent fronthaul links operating on up to 4 simultaneous DFS channels which further reduces interference and network congestion.

The Razer Sila was developed in collaboration with wireless home networking partner Ignition Design Labs—the technology and engineering firm founded by alumni of networking giants Qualcomm and Broadcom. Ignition Design Labs is best known for launching the award-winning Portal Smart WiFi router in 2016.

“Razer demands the very best in engineering, design and performance. We are thrilled to be Razer’s design partner, applying our engineering expertise and patented technologies to build a uniquely powerful pro-grade router for the world’s foremost gaming and entertainment ecosystem,” said Terry Ngo, CEO of Ignition Design Labs.

*Based on third party verification testing by Allion USA, which shows the Razer Sila outperforms other mesh routers and dedicated gaming routers when a real-world home environment is simulated with additional WiFi network signals.
