Features
Benefits
Performance, Flexibility, and Mobility
Over 5x performance increase1
Up to 300 Mbps1 receive bandwidth compared to
54 Mbps 802.11a/b/g solutions
Minimizes the time needed to transfer large files and enables applications such as High Definition
(HD) video streaming and multi-player gaming.
Up to 2x greater range1
MIMO, diversity, and support for up to two
antennas enable better wireless reception at the
same distance when compared to 802.11b/g
solutions
Reduces the number of “dead zones”, network re-connects, and dropped data packets; dramatically
improving connectivity throughout the home and enabling more consistent coverage in the
enterprise.
Intel® Wireless Display3
