ASUS released Wi-Fi 6E PCIe network card: the speed soars to 3Gbps
ASUS released Wi-Fi 6E PCIe network card: the speed soars to 3Gbps.
Do you want to experience the new generation of 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E with extremely fast speed, extremely low latency, and more stable multi-devices? Feel the 6GHz band?
In addition to top new motherboards and new notebooks, ASUS today brought a PCIe expansion card Wi-Fi 6E wireless network card ” PCE-AX58BT “, even the old machine, as long as there is a PCIe x1 expansion slot.
Its theoretical maximum bandwidth in the Wi-Fi 6E 6GHz and Wi-Fi 6 5GHz bands is 2402Mbps, and the Wi-Fi 6 2.4GHz band can reach 574Mbps, which is close to 3000Mbps in total, so it belongs to the AX3000 series.
If it is on 802.11ac Wi-Fi 5 and 802.11n Wi-Fi 4 networks, the maximum speed is 1733Mbps and 300Mbps respectively.
The core network chip is not disclosed, it looks like it should be Intel AX210.
The network card integrates an M.2 2230 specification network card on the PCIe expansion card, covering an aluminum heat sink, and dual external antennas.
Oh, yes, it also supports Bluetooth 5.2 and comes with a USB 2.0 cable.
The time to market and price are temporarily unknown.
Wi-Fi 6 knowledge:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
IEEE 802.11ax-2021 or 802.11ax is an IEEE standard for wireless local-area networks (WLANs) and the successor of 802.11ac. It is marketed as Wi-Fi 6 (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) and Wi-Fi 6E (6 GHz) by the Wi-Fi Alliance. It is also known as High Efficiency Wi-Fi, for the overall improvements to Wi-Fi 6 clients under dense environments. It is designed to operate in license-exempt bands between 1 and 7.125 GHz, including the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands already in common use as well as the much wider 6 GHz band (5.925–7.125 GHz in the US).
The main goal of this standard is enhancing throughput-per-area[a] in high-density scenarios, such as corporate offices, shopping malls and dense residential apartments. While the nominal data rate improvement against 802.11ac is only 37%,:qt the overall throughput improvement (over an entire network) is 400% (hence High Efficiency).:qt This also translates to 75% lower latency.
The quadrupling of overall throughput is made possible by a higher spectral efficiency. The key feature underpinning 802.11ax is orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA), which is equivalent to cellular technology applied into Wi-Fi.:qt Other improvements on spectrum utilization are better power-control methods to avoid interference with neighboring networks, higher order 1024‑QAM, up-link direction added with the down-link of MIMO and MU-MIMO to further increase throughput, as well as dependability improvements of power consumption and security protocols such as Target Wake Time and WPA3.
The IEEE 802.11ax-2021 standard was approved on February 9, 2021…….
