MSI showcased its first WiFi 6e router at IFA: Radix AXE6600. It’s a so-called “gaming router”, with triple-band WiFi (2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz), a 2.5Gb/s Ethernet port, four 1Gb/s ports and of course RGB-relief.

The router should be able to achieve a total speed of 6600 Mbit/s over WiFi alone; So 825 megabytes per second. It has a 1.8GHz Qualcomm quad-core processor and a massive heatsink that should keep everything cool.
The AXE6600 has a feature that MSI calls “AI QoS” (where “QoS” would stand for “quality of service”). With the push of a button (the MSI logo on the router), you can switch between certain presets, such as gaming or streaming mode. This gives a certain priority to Internet traffic, which should be useful for your online gaming experience.

MSI is not known for its routers, but the AXE6600 isn’t their first model. In 2004 we tested the MSI RG54GS router here: Over WiFi, we achieved throughput speeds of 23.31 Mbit/s. The MSI RG300EX appears to be the latest model sold in the Netherlands, as of 2011.
