Do routers make a difference for gaming?

Yes, gaming routers make a world of difference to the online gaming experience. Gaming routers have an excellent feature known as Quality of Service (QoS). The Quality of Services enables you to prioritize incoming traffic for your game. It does not matter your roommate is downloading torrents at maximum speed, watching movies on Netflix, or downloading files. Your game will run smoothly and without any interruptions because the router prioritizes the game over anything else

Quality of Service reduces the data loss for the gaming device and provides the connection to the rest of the application through a different stream. As a result, your game doesn’t hang up or lag behind your competitors. 

Other important characteristics of gaming routers include extra Gigabit Ethernet Ports, traffic prioritization for gaming, and the latest wireless standards. All the modern high-end routers offer these features to their users as well.
