Enhancing their performance, both routers double the speeds of Wi-Fi 6 devices, thanks to Qualcomm Technologies’ wireless innovations. The Predator Connect X7 5G CPE, offering up to 3.5 Gbps speeds, is equipped with advanced connectivity options, including load balancing and failover systems, ensuring reliable network performance.

These routers also feature network acceleration technology and are compatible with the Intel Killer Prioritization Engine, optimizing traffic management for a wide array of games, apps, and websites. They support 320 MHz channels, 4K QAM, and Multi-Link Operations, which collectively increase throughput, reduce latency, and minimize network interference.

The Multi-Link Mesh feature further enhances their capability, enabling the creation of a cohesive and extensive Wi-Fi network through multiple access points.
