QoS stands for Quality of Service. It's the ability for a router to differentiate Internet traffic and assign different priorities to specific traffics in order to maximize the bandwidth.

What's the difference between ASRock Gaming Boost and Qualcomm Stream Boost?

ASRock Gaming Boost is the same as Qualcomm Stream Boost.

How to test whether Gaming Boost really works?

First of all, you need some bandwidth consuming applications in your network environment. We suggest running a BitTorent client with lots of active and popular torrents, and prepare another powerful client for several 2K/4K YouYube videos. These applications should soak out every bit of your internet bandwidth. Then you can try to play online games with Gaming Boost on or off to experience the benefits of Gaming Boost.

How is ASRock Gaming Boost different from other QoS services?

ASRock Gaming Boost gives G10 router the intelligence to recognize devices, applications in your network environment. It also makes sure devices can get the required bandwidth according to each application in order to achieve the best internet experience.

Why do we need to setup the bandwidth for ASRock Gaming Boost?

QoS service works like serving food to your customers. The total quantities of the food must be known first before a reasonable serving approach. You can fill the bandwidth according to the contract with your ISP or you can visit http://www.speedtest.net for more accurate internet bandwidth benchmark.
