MSI has announced the RadiX AX6600 and RadiX AXE6600, two new tri-band routers designed for online gaming that feature a 1.8 GHz quad-core CPU from Qualcomm and can deliver combined speeds of up to 6600 Mbps. The former supports Wi-Fi 6, while the latter supports Wi-Fi 6E, enabling it to utilize seven high-speed 160 MHz channels on the new 6 GHz spectrum for increased network capacity while mitigating congestion and interference. The AX1800 WiFi USB Adapter was also announced by MSI today as part of its aim of providing gamers with an ultra-fast home network with low latency and no jitter.
From an MSI press release:
Upgrade your gaming experience
The RadiX AXE6600 and RadiX AX6600 are powerful tri-band gaming routers that each can deliver combined speeds of up to 6600 Mbps. An integrated 1.8GHz quad-core CPU from Qualcomm and advanced networking hardware has been designed to prevent jitter, reduce lag, lower ping, and sustain incredible speed for online gaming.
RadiX AXE6600 adopts WiFi 6E technology with high-speed 160 MHz channels on the virtually interference-free 6GHz band that relieves network congestion. Compared to older technologies, WiFi 6E dramatically increases transfer performance and capacity to support bandwidth-hungry devices like gaming systems and AR/ VR entertainment.
QoS up and running out of box
AI QoS is a breakthrough in bandwidth management. It is an out-of-box solution that automatically prioritizes network traffic and dynamically adjusts bandwidth utilization. AI QoS comes with four preset modes, gaming, streaming, work from home, and AI-auto, that are easily toggle-able anytime for your needs. The AI QoS modes are indicated by the RGB lights on RadiX AXE6600 and further configuration can be performed from a web browser, the MSI Router app, or MSI Center software program.
Premium cooling design
Leveraging MSI’s reputable experience in computer thermal designs, the RadiX series has the world’s first gaming routers that feature heatpipes and graphene coated heatsinks for elevated cooling. These ensure these routers can provide stable and long-term service even under heavy traffic loads.
Seamless gaming network
MSI is dedicated to providing cutting edge solutions to gamers, and the MSI FIRST functionality in RadiX AXE6600 and RadiX AX6600 makes it easy to get more when connecting and accelerating MSI gaming devices together including desktops, laptops, motherboards, and the AX1800 WiFi USB adapter.
Manage your way
RadiX series gaming routers can have settings configured and traffic monitored through the web browser interface, MSI Router mobile app, or MSI Center for PC. The easy-to-use menus are accessible to users who are new to network configuration as well as more advanced users.
