Intel at Computex 2019, which is held in Taipei from May 28 to June 1, told about the development of the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard in the near future.
According to the manufacturer, not all Wi-Fi 6 solutions are the same. Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig +) solutions for personal computers and routers provide data rates of over 1 Gbps. They use the 160 MHz band to achieve “real” gigabit speed. It provides better performance for networking.
As emphasized by Intel, Wi-Fi 6 (Gig +) solutions are almost twice as fast as “standard” Wi-Fi 6 solutions and almost three times as compared to 802.11 AC.
Intel chipsets for WAV600 series routers provide Gig + performance. They will be the basis of low-cost two-way home routers and network gateways. It also provides backward compatibility with past Wi-Fi standards.
Manufacturers such as AVM, Edimax, Elecom, Netgear, TP-Link are already working on routers and Wi-Fi 6 (Gig +) network gateways. They will be available until the end of 2019.
Also, by the end of 2019 more than a hundred computers with Wi-Fi 6 (Gig +) will become available as an optional feature. These will include Intel Core vPro, the eighth generation of the ninth generation Intel Core and the tenth generation of the latest Intel Core processors, formerly codenamed Ice Lake.
