The Intel Advantage

Tested and Validated Like No Other

We don’t just create extremely fast, reliable wireless technology- we also create the processors and PC platforms where the technology runs. That means Intel® products work better together – because we can design, optimize, and test the entire platform to ensure our Wi-Fi operates best on Intel platforms. Additionally we test our products against a complete ecosystem of hotspots and networks closely approximating real-life situations. And that’s a huge advantage we bring to anyone looking for an amazing PC experience.

A Legacy of Innovation

Always on the Leading Edge

Innovation is in our DNA. In 2003, the release of Intel® Centrino® wireless technology expanded wireless access to laptops, coffee shops, and couches. Today’s Intel® Wireless-AC 160 MHz products with Gigabit Wi-Fi deliver amazing wireless speeds and reliability.

The Future of Wireless

Faster Speed with Wi-Fi 6

While today’s Gigabit Wi-Fi delivers speed and reliability once thought impossible, wireless connectivity continues to make giant leaps with 802.11ax-based Wi-Fi 6. Future Intel® Wireless-AX 160 MHz products built for Wi-Fi 6 will deliver nearly 40% faster5 Gigabit Wi-Fi speeds with enhanced network efficiency and security for improved experiences in dense wireless device environments including the home and office.

Gigabit Wi-Fi & Bluetooth® Technology

If your PC has super-fast Intel® Wireless-AC 160 MHz Gigabit Wi-Fi inside, that means it also has the latest Bluetooth® technology. These technologies are integrated on the same wireless adapter, optimized, and ready to make your experience even smooth and more enjoyable. Together, they allow your PC to experience dramatically faster Wi-Fi speeds1 and enable reliable wireless connectivity for keyboards, mice, headphones, and speakers.

Not All Wi-Fi Is the Same

There are huge performance and reliability differences among PC Wi-Fi solutions. The ability to consistently move large quantities of data from HD movies, high-resolution photos, and music play-lists at blazing speeds is essential for an excellent Wi-Fi experience. Standard Intel® Wireless-AC 2x2 products deliver nearly 6X faster data speeds6 compared to basic 1x1 BGN Wi-Fi solutions. Gigabit Wi-Fi speeds from Intel® Wireless-AC 2x2 160 MHz cards elevate the PC wireless experience to the next level with 2X faster performance than standard Intel® Wireless-AC products.1

Wi-Fi Benefits for the Desktop

Your PC is no longer locked in place next to a modem or Ethernet port. With the benefits of Intel® Wireless-AC, desktops, mini PCs, and All-in-One (AIO) PCs can be placed in any convenient area of the home or office without the hassles and potential costs associated with cumbersome cables. Experience fast wireless download speeds and great streaming experiences on desktop PCs equipped with new Gigabit Wi-Fi powered by Intel.

802.11ac 2x2 160MHz 实现了 1733 Mbps 最大理论数据速率,是标准 802.11ac 2x2 80MHz (867Mbps) 速度的 2 倍,是基准 1x1 BGN (150Mbps) Wi-Fi(IEEE 802.11 无线标准规格记录)速度的近 12 倍,并且要求使用配置类似的 802.11ac 无线网络路由器或更高版本。要实现千兆无线速度,网络需要支持 160MHz 通道的无线路由器/接入点。

2

在考虑网络开销的前提下,预计 Wi-Fi 下载时间基于实际情况下,单个客户端的最佳吞吐量速度(约为 IEEE 802.11 规格最大理论数据速率的 70%)计算得出。实际性能可能因系统设计、网络配置和无线环境而异。如果以 802.11 BGN 40 MHz 150 Mbps 最大理论数据速率和 105 Mbps 预期最大吞吐量计算高清电影下载时间,则下载一部 8GB 电影的时间为 10 分 54 秒。如果以 802.11AC 160Mhz 1733 Mbps 最大理论数据速率和 1213 Mbps 预期最大吞吐量计算下载时间,则电影下载时间为 57 秒。
