MX4200 belongs to LINKSYS a Velop new product, tri-band Mesh, Velop can be seen as a built-in antenna body, MR series is the external antenna design body. MX4200 in the details page page has stated that the CPU model is IPQ8174, for me is a new face of the CPU, but this shows the narrowness of my eyes, because the net device The RBK752 has been on sale for a while and the CPU is exactly this one Qualcomm IPQ8174.

Quad-core 1.4GHz, A53 architecture, supports up to 8 spatial streams, total wireless rate 4.1Gbps = 573Mbps + 1201Mbps + 2402Mbps, belongs to Qualcomm Networking Pro 800 Platform series.

Xiaomi AX3600 / Redmi AX6 that CPU is IPQ8071A, quad-core 1GHz, Xiaomi’s own words overclocked to 1.4GHz to use. Have not seen the proof of CPU real-time frequency. It supports up to 6 spatial streams with a total wireless rate of 1.7Gbps = 574Mbps + 1201Mbps. belongs to the Networking Pro 600 Platform series.

MX5300’s CPU is IPQ8072A, quad-core 2.2GHz. belongs to Qualcomm’s top-level Qualcomm Networking Pro 1200 series, supporting up to 12 spatial streams.

The MX4200 has a USB 3.0 interface like the MX5300, and I believe the read and write speed should be very good, after all, the frequency is high. Its back interface.

Parameter table of MX4200.


Those who already have a tri-band velop and mr9000x group network users, want to upgrade the wifi6 and want some more powerful CPU, but do not want MX5300 so expensive, this MX4200 is the best choice. For dual-band velop users, the MX4200 is also very suitable for the main route, a bit of anticipation!
