Apple is behind? Intel Wi-Fi 7 is here: Twice the network speed

On August 2nd, according to foreign media ETNEWS reports, Intel plans to join the Wi-Fi 7 technology to the new device launched in 2024. As the successor of Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7 will bring 2 times the data throughput and support the data processing speed of up to 36Gbps to hardware devices.

Although Wi-Fi 6 has become very popular on many smartphones, PC and tablet computers, there are still many routers that have not yet developed this generation of wireless network technology. In this case, Wi-Fi 7 is coming soon Essence According to the latest reports, Intel is accelerating the research and development process of Wi-Fi 7 technology. It is expected to be pre-adopted in the new computer released next year, and then gradually expand to other devices. The whole process will spend less than two years. Although in recent years, wireless network technology has developed quite fast, but many mobile terminals have just done "superficial kung fu", such as apples that support Wi-Fi 6, even on the latest iPhone 13 2X2 MIMO technology, and does not support 160MHz, it is impossible to reach the standard speed of normal Wi-Fi 6 router.

However, in Intel's outlook, the application scope of Wi-Fi 7 will be expanded to virtual reality, augmented reality and game fields. These areas still have no perfect experience in the civil level. For ordinary consumers, Wi-Fi The situation of 7 is a bit like the first birth of 5G, and the use is not clear enough. It is worth noting that the biggest feature of Wi-Fi 7 is that in addition to supporting 2.4GHz and 5GHz, the support of the 6GHz frequency band can be added at the same time in three frequency bands, but the current only confirmed to open this band is the United States and South Korea. For Chinese users, this frequency band must wait for the next generation of mobile network communication technology, that is, the 6G network has the opportunity to support it.

In fact, the renewal iteration of technology is very normal, but the technical upgrade is too fast, which makes it easy for equipment manufacturers to follow up in time, and the cost of technology research and development is prematurely allowed to share it. It is also difficult in popularity. I have to say that some large manufacturers have also become a "stumbling block" in technology promotion. For example, Apple, it is not until the iPhone 14 series that there is news that it uses Qualcomm's latest X65 modem, which supports 10Gbps 10D network speed. Such large manufacturers are not positive. It is no wonder that technological promotion is difficult.
