Updated MacBook Air laptops and MacBook Pro will support the new wireless standard Wi-Fi 802.11ac, offering gigabit data transmission over Wi-Fi. According Tonymacx86, photos wireless module for the new Apple computers have appeared today in the “spy” shots.

Next-generation wireless chips with increased to 160 Hz frequency range and up to 8 antennas were presented Broadcom Corporation on the Consumer Electronics Show last year. The main advantage of 5G Wi-Fi is the ability to transmit data at a rate of 1.3 gigabits per second. According to the statement Broadcom, this specification is three times faster and six times more powerful than 802.11n.

Of course, the mere existence of 802.11ac support in laptops does not mean that computer users will be able to immediately increase the speed of Wi-Fi up to 1.3 Gbit / s. First, a person must have the appropriate hardware, such as a wireless router that supports this technology, and secondly, the very provider must support the transfer of data at such high speeds. Routers with support for 802.11ac already appearing on the market, but with the appropriate speed at ISPs matters worse.


The present technology of MacBook Air and MacBook Professional have hardware options for 802.11n, in a position to working at speeds as much as 450 MB / sec. Technically 802.11as new usual is backward suitable with 802.11n, in addition to previous g, b and a. Impartial producers from the start of the yr presenting gear and embedded chips with enhance for 802.11ac.

Liberate MacBook Air and MacBook Professional with toughen for subsequent-era Wi-Fi 802.11ac is anticipated at WWDC 2013 in early June.
