Apple computers with Gigabit Wi-FI

by on10 April 2013 1495 times

This year's edition of Apple Mac computers could have support for faster Wi-Fi wireless networks. Apple has in a new beta version of the upcoming operating system upgrade OS X 10.8.4 implemented support for 802.11 ac standard that supports data transfer rates up to 1.3 Gbps in the local wireless network.

The current generation of Macs supports 802.11 n specification and speeds of up to 450 Mbps (iMac and MacBook Pro), or up to 270 Mbps for devices with two antennas like the MacBook Air. Gigabit Wi-Fi equipment that supports this specification are all accessible - many chip makers like Broadcomm presented at CES more than a few 802.11 ac solutions, and since the last year there are some network routers that support the specification.

This year, the availability of 802.11 ac network equipment should be more generous, and the same applies to the devices from computers to tablets and smartphones like HTC One, which also supports the 802.11 Wi-Fi ac. This could soon be the case for the Apple devices, at least as far as computers are concerned.
