Many Internet users experience Wi-Fi signal problems, especially when moving from one part of the house to another. But MSI believes it has found a solution with the new RadiX BE22000 Turbo, improving the internet signal provided by the router by attaching motors to its radio antennas that can track the position of connected devices to ensure the most stable connection.
MSI’s RadiX BE22000 Turbo’s antennas move with the user’s position
MSI’s RadiX BE22000 Turbo router is more of a concept at the moment than a final product. That’s because it’s built on technologies that haven’t been officially released yet, like Wi-Fi 7. While the hardware is capable of supporting Wi-Fi 7 signals and the speeds needed for the next generation of wireless connections, the standard for these has not been finalized. So the earliest we’ll see this router from MSI is 2024, if not later.
The company unveiled this product at CES 2023 and says it can offer transfer speeds up to four times faster than Wi-Fi 6 models. It’s unclear, however, how it will prioritize which devices it will track, given that there are typically multiple devices in a home using wireless at once.
By the time it reaches the market, however, the RadiX BE22000 Turbo could improve on other aspects, such as the motors that control antenna position.
However, this is not the first router model with active antennas. TP-Link previously announced an Archer AXE200 Omni model that does something similar. How efficient such a system is compared to a mesh system is not exactly clear, however. However, given that with new technologies and increasing frequencies for radio signals, routers have become more and more fussy with the signal, we are likely to see more and more such solutions to ensure optimal transfer speeds and stable signal.
