Asus Republic of Gamers’ (ROG) and The Ultimate Force (TUF) new gaming notebooks are the first consumer notebooks with MediaTek’s Wi-Fi 6 connectivity solution. Now powered with MediaTek’s MT7921 Wi-Fi 6 chipset, the notebooks promise ultra-fast and reliable connectivity.

According to MediaTek, a global semiconductor company, the MT7921 delivers high performance, power efficiency for longer battery life, and fast, reliable connectivity for the ROG and TUF series. The company said the chipset is designed to provide higher throughput performance over 2×2 dual-band antennas compared with previous Wi-Fi 5 solutions. It will also ensure high performance with power efficiency based on the 22nm process while lower latency with hardware enhancements will provide better signal transmission to support super long-range connections.
