    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 the digital signatures of your applications and compares them to a database of over 200,000 apps. The database is regularly updated to ensure that apps are recognized.

    Boost

    GameFirst VI intelligently 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 current bandwidth usage of each application, geolocation status of each network connection, and an analysis of each WiFi channel.

    WHAT IT DOES

    ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENCE

    GameFirst VI analyzes current app usage and adjusts bandwidth accordingly to ensure smoother online experiences, even when multitasking.

    GAMING FIRST MODE

    Gaming First mode leverages a massive application database and an analysis of your frequently used apps to prioritize gaming network traffic. This reduces jitter and decreases 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 that provides a clear overview of current network status. When paired with a ROG router, WiFi Quick Assist lets you quickly scan your WiFi network to find the best channel; then, you can use Game Boost to prioritize gaming devices and packets.

    LEADING CONNECTIVITIY

    ROG Strix B460-H Gaming provides you with the latest connectivity for supersmooth online experiences and blisteringly fast file transfers. Superior audio performance gives you a massive advantage, allowing you to pick up on the smallest audio cues for a completely immersive gaming experience.
