Intel’s vice president of wireless solutions, Eric McLaughlin, says the company aims to add Wi-Fi 7 hardware to laptops and other computers in 2024, followed by the rest of the market a year later, The Register reports.
According to Eric McLaughlin, Intel will seek WiFi Alliance certification for its IEEE 802.11be (wifi 7) products as soon as it is available. At the moment there is no known date for this.
A laptop with wifi 7 is expected to have a maximum data speed of close to 5.8 Gbps, which can be compared with wifi 6/6e where the ceiling is instead on 2.4 Gbps.
