Broadcom brings faster Wi-Fi speeds

Earlier today, Broadcom announced their new network processor that will bring faster speeds to the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard for mobile phones.

This new processor will double the data rate of earlier product while cutting power consumption by 25%. The system will support 2×2 MIMO (Multiple Input/Multiple Output) technology. This technology transfers data faster on a single frequency by using two transmitting antennas and two receiving antennas.

The company is currently making samples of the chip although they haven’t said when production versions would arrive.
