GET THE MOST OUT OF ALL YOUR CORES

AI NETWORKING

The proprietary ROG GameFirst VI utility is designed to help all users — beginners, experts, and everyone in between — optimize network settings to ensure smooth online gameplay. New to this generation, GameFirst VI features AI enhanced identification and boost technology to ensure faster and smarter network optimization.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Identification

    GameFirst VI analyzes your usage patterns and applications’ digital signatures and compares them to a database of over 200,000 apps. This database is regularly updated to ensure apps are recognized correctly.
  • Boost

    GameFirst VI intelligent switches application priority and adjusts bandwidth accordingly depending on the situation. When gaming, it accelerates and prioritizes game packets to give you supersmooth online gameplay even when you’re streaming high-quality video to your audience or transferring large files.
  • Visualization

    An intuitive graph gives you an overview of the network in real-time, simply click on the tab to view the current bandwidth usage of each application, geolocation status of each network connection, and an analysis of the WiFi channels.

WHAT IT DOES

Adaptive Intelligence

GameFirst VI takes note of what you’re currently doing and adjusts bandwidth accordingly to ensure smoother online experiences, even when multitasking.

Gaming First Mode

Gaming First mode leverages on a massive application database and analysis of your frequently-used apps to prioritize gaming network traffic. This reduces jitter and decrease ping to give you lag-free online gaming.

Network Insight

WiFi Quick Assist analyzes network information including real-time bandwidth use to generate a graph to give you a clear overview of current network status. On top of that, when paired with a ROG router, you can scan your WiFi network to find the best channel, as well as use Game Boost to prioritize gaming devices and packets on your network for ultrafast online speeds.
