MSI is not a name that is commonly known in the field of gaming routers, but the company intends to change that notion with the launch of the RadiX AXE6600 at CES 2022. This is the first MSI wireless router to be added to the company’s growing family of hardware peripherals. MSI used to be better known for producing products such as motherboards and graphics cards.
According to Thameshardor, the RadiX AXE6600 is based on the latest wireless protocol, Wi-Fi 6E, and uses a bootloader. Although MSI did not go into full detail about the router, we do know that it uses a Qualcomm 1.8 GHz quad-core processor. The router also uses a powerful heatsink and heat pipe arrangement to keep its internal components cool.
Given that MSI is entering a market where there is a lot of competition between different companies, including Tipi Link and Asus, the RadiX AXE6600 router must provide capabilities to be able to make a name for itself in this market. One of the special features of this product is the use of artificial intelligence technology called AI QoS. The MSI logo is embedded on top of the router and actually acts as a button. Pressing this button is done through several preset QoS stations (eg gaming, streaming, productivity, etc.) so you do not have to use software or web interface to change settings. Of course, if you want to control the QoS settings more precisely, you can still use the router’s web interface.
Another trick MSI did on the RadiX AXE6600 was to support the Mystic Light RGB lighting system. Of course, we have already seen the use of RGB in other gaming routers, but MSI has used RGB in its new router in a new way. RGB effects can be seen in the 6 antennas of this product that have protruded from the body.
Unfortunately, MSI has not yet released any other information about the RadiX AXE6600 WiFi router, but the company has confirmed that this product will be released this year and possibly in the third or fourth quarter.
