Wonder if this is the model @RMerlin was helping to develop earlier?

Asus does seem to have a somewhat dizzying and bewildering product offering of Wi-Fi routers.
American marketing would call it the "throw it up on the wall and see what sticks" strategy.

The ability to separate "gaming" traffic and normal traffic through a VPN seems like a nice feature gamers would like.

Still, it has RGB's and kids love those. It will sell.

Many models share the same or similar hardware, even the same FCC certification. You are going to pay for RGB and unlocking of previously locked in software functions. Example: RT-AX58U, RT-AX3000, RT-AX82U, TUF-AX3000. All the same router with or without "gaming" marketing.

When you also sell much more $$$ "gaming" class motherboards, graphics cards and laptops - keeping it all in the family. ;-)

Even Asus got confused with this "gaming" marketing.
Go to Asus Global web site, Laptops, For Gaming (watch mouse-over pop-up text)

ROG laptops - "Powerful. Portable. Precise."
TUF Gaming - "Next-Level Gaming"

Now go to Motherboards and do the same:

ROG - "Enthusiasts & Pro Gamers"
TUF Gaming - "Casual Gamers"

If you think you're a real gamer - get a TUF Laptop, but a ROG Motherboard. ;)

LOL. That's a good find.

The thing I don't get about all these large Asian / Eastern companies is why their English websites are always written in pidgin English. It can't be money, you can hire someone off fiver to translate a website fluently for $20.
