Sandy Bridge Posted January 13 Share Posted January 13 Tom's has published a nice article on the upcoming 802.11be (WiFi 7) standard. Basically, it'll be faster - more streams, twice the max bandwidth per stream, and the ability to use multiple frequencies at once in an aggregated connection. I'm still not exactly sure what the practical max bandwidth increase in a laptop with two or three antennas is, but it's likely faster than for 802.11ax. Is anyone chomping at the bit to upgrade? I've still got a three-antenna 802.11ac router that works perfectly well for me, the only reason I have to upgrade is that they've stopped shipping firmware updates a few years ago so it's probably been part of a botnet without my even being aware of it. Although who knows, maybe a fancy new 802.11be router would make it so large sequential WiFi transfer speeds exceeded gigabit Ethernet speeds in practice as well as in theory, that would be nice too. 2 Desktop: Core i5 2500k "Sandy Bridge" | RX 480 | 32 GB DDR3 | 850 Evo + HDDs | Seasonic 650W | Noctua Fans | 8.1 Pro Laptop: MSI Alpha 15 | Ryzen 5800H | Radeon 6600M | 16 GB DDR4 | 512 GB SSD | 10 Home Laptop history: MSI GL63 (2018) | HP EliteBook 8740w (acq. 2014) | Dell Inspiron 1520 (2007) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
