Fast Wi-Fi is one of the main selling points of laptops, thus companies must incorporate the most recent technology in order to stay relevant in the tech industry. With this in mind, Intel is planning to introduce Wi-Fi 7 to clients by 2024.

Intel Plans To Bring Wi-Fi 7 to Their Laptops in Two Years Time

As the leading provider of notebook platforms globally, Intel must quickly adapt new technologies to keep its advantage.

Prior to Wi-Fi 7’s release on the market in 2024, Intel expects to intensify its development efforts in this aspect, focusing first on laptops before extending to other devices, as per the news story by Mac Rumors.

“We are currently developing Intel’s Wi-Fi ‘802.11be’ in order to obtain the ‘Wi-Fi Alliance’ certification, and it will be installed in PC products such as laptops by 2024,” said Eric McLaughlin, vice president of Intel’s wireless solutions division, according to Mac Rumors. “We expect it to appear in major markets in 2025.”

What Is Wi-Fi 7 and Should You Be Concerned About It?

The successor to Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax), Wi-Fi 7 (also known as IEEE 802.11be), offers twice as fast data processing rates of 5.8 Gbps, more consistent 6 GHz bandwidth, and compatibility for up to 36 Gbps while working with data, Mac Rumors reported.

However, for the majority of users, Wi-Fi 7’s maximum raw aggregated bitrate of 40,000 Mbit/s (40 Gbit/s) will render conventional Ethernet connections obsolete. Client devices, on the other hand, typically support much slower connections, according to Tom’s Hardware.

Given Wi-Fi 7’s vastly enhanced performance over Wi-Fi 6/6E, Intel anticipates that bandwidth-hungry applications like augmented reality and virtual reality headsets, which employ Intel’s WiGig (Wireless Gigabit) technology, will adopt the technology.

For quite some time, Intel has been one of the leading advocates of Wi-Fi 7. Meanwhile, the Wi-Fi 7 draft-compliant chips for access points and client devices have already been made public by Broadcom and Qualcomm, as per Tom’s Hardware.

Intel Lost $500 Nearly Million in Q2 2022

As previously reported, Intel recently announced that it lost about $500 million in Q2 2022, its first quarterly deficit in years. The company’s revenues fell by 22% from the prior year, according to Intel’s Q2 financial report. These results forced Intel to lower its forecasted yearly revenues from $68 billion to $65 billion.

The decreases were attributed by the company to lower PC component demand as well as general economic downturns.

David Zinsner, chief financial officer of the semiconductor company, stressed that the COVID-19-related slowdown was partially to blame for declining customer demand, which in turn resulted in a reduction in sales.

Meanwhile, even though Intel lost half a billion dollars in a matter of months, Pat Gelsinger, the company’s CEO, was optimistic about the upcoming increase in chip demand.

This is especially true in light of the historic $280 billion spending bill that the House of Representatives adopted and which will provide $52 billion to the U.S. semiconductor industry.
