MSI launches RadiX AXE6600 Tri-band Wi-Fi 6E gaming router with RGB lighting
When you think of the brand MSI, you probably picture things like laptops, desktops, motherboards, and other PC accessories. MSI products are legendary with the PC gaming community. While MSI is not a name you would normally associate with networking gear, the company is looking to change that by launching two all new wireless gaming routers.
Called "RadiX AXE6600," this Tri-band Wi-Fi 6E router has six external antennas that all feature RGB lighting. Yes, folks, you can customize the light colors on this router. The RGB can even be used to indicate the in-use QoS mode. The router has four Gigabit LAN ports and a 2.5G WAN port. You also get a USB-A port.
The company is also releasing the RadiX AX6600 router which is very similar to the AXE6600, but it is limited to Wi-Fi 6 (rather than 6E) and it does not have RGB lighting. Both the RadiX AX6600 and RadiX AXE6600 have heatsinks coated with graphene and special heat pipes for advanced cooling.

An integrated 1.8GHz quad-core CPU from Qualcomm and advanced networking hardware have been designed to prevent jitter, reduce lag, lower ping, and sustain incredible speed for online gaming," says MSI.
