What is StreamBoost anyway?


The next big thing is always around the corner. And whether it’s an expansive MMO, a competitive FPS, or the newest RTS, the demands made on your limited bandwidth often create interruptions in packet delivery and a poor gaming session. StreamBoost automatically adjusts and controls Internet bandwidth using a sophisticated Traffic Shaping engine. Much more than a simple QoS, Traffic Shaping actually reserves segments of your Internet bandwidth when the application is detected by the router. With a unique cloud-based updating and crowd-sourced profile creation system, the Gaming Router is always evolving to offer the best experiences for the newest apps, games and devices. Background applications like large file downloads, Cloud Storage SYNCs, and system updates no longer have to be suspended for game or movie time. What does this mean? Happy gamers. Happy roommates. And the best online experience you’ve ever had.
