How important is Router RAM and CPU to VR wireless streaming?


Recommended Posts

@Tausendberg - Adding more ram and CPU will generally increase responsiveness for anything traffic that touches the router.


  • Has a newer "Multi-Gig" 2.5Gbps WAN/LAN port which could be helpful if you can actually leverage speeds faster than 1Gbps.
    • This port enables it to work with Asus' AiMesh mesh networking.
  • The extra ram and CPU allow it to support support more more "mu-mimo" users (high speed connections to devices).


  • Same radios
  • Has gigabyte LAN

Both are great routers that have the same radios. 86U is more future proof but you'll probably have a reasonable experience on both.
