Ultra-fast Wi-Fi Powered by Intel

With the right solution from Intel, your Wi-Fi performs just as remarkably as you do—easily keeping pace with your entertainment, business, and super-connected lifestyle. For instance, a PC equipped with Intel® Wireless-AC 2x2 with speeds of 867Mbps is capable of transferring large files nearly 6x faster1 than files transferred at 802.11 bgn 1x1 speeds of 150Mbps. At Intel, we’ve been creating technology to improve life at home, work, and on-the-go since the very beginning. Innovation is what we do.

The Future of Wireless

Get Ready to Meet the Next Generation of Wi-Fi

Today, Intel® Wireless-AC delivers speed and reliability that was once impossible. Tomorrow, we’ll take another giant leap forward with 802.11ax, which is expected to provide close to 40% faster2 data rate and greatly enhanced network management. This next generation of Wi-Fi will dramatically improve your wireless experience—especially in device-dense environments like airports and large workspaces.

A Legacy of Innovation

The Leading Edge Is Where We’ve Always Been

At Intel, innovation is in our DNA. In 2003, the release of our Centrino Mobile Technology expanded wireless access to laptops, coffee shops, and couches. Today, Intel® Wireless-AC delivers speed and reliability that were entirely unheard-of not that long ago.1 But while all of that may be quite impressive, it’s nothing compared to what we have planned for tomorrow.

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.

Intel® Wireless-AC and Bluetooth® Technology — For an Even Better Experience

When your PC has blazingly fast Intel® Wireless-AC inside, that means it also has Bluetooth® technology—integrated, optimized, and ready to make your experience even smoother and more enjoyable. Integrated in your PC, these powerful technologies improve network reliability and reduce interference while providing wireless connectivity for your keyboard, mouse, headphones, and speakers.

Product and Performance Information

1

Nearly “3x/6x faster” Intel® Wireless-AC claims are based on the comparison of maximum theoretical data rates for single (433 Mbps) and dual (867 Mbps) spatial stream 802.11ac vs. single spatial stream (150 Mbps) 802.11n Wi-Fi solutions as documented in IEEE 802.11 wireless standard specifications, and require the use of similarly configured 802.11ac wireless network routers or better. Tests document performance of components on a particular test, in specific systems. Differences in hardware, software, or configuration will affect actual performance. Consult other sources of information to evaluate performance as you consider your purchase.
