Intel has just increased its threat against Qualcomm in a very big way by announcing their new XMM 7660 LTE modem, something that will really push the limits of download speeds over our mobile devices.

The new XMM 7660 LTE modem from Intel is capable of reaching 1.6Gbps which is an incredible leap from the 1Gbps offered under Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor. Intel's new LTE modem will be one of the fastest in the world, and could be inside of the iPhone 9.

 

Intel will need to provide some real-world tests of the 1.6Gbps teased by its XMM 7660 LTE modem, but I think seeing 1.5GB/sec downloading onto my phone will be so scary I'd pass out. My 100Mbps fiber connection at home is already mighty fine, but 1.6Gbps from my phone? Holy hell.
