Wi-Fi 7 doesn't even exist yet, but Qualcomm has it: up to 5.8Gbps 07

The company is introducing its new FastConnect 7800 which has some deliciously high speeds and low latency, with Qualcomm promising high-speed, ultra-low latency Wi-Fi that are only capable with the next-gen Wi-Fi 7 standard. Qualcomm is using a High Band Simultaneous (HBS) Multi-Link technology, which the company says is the "premium capability" for Wi-Fi 7 networks.

Qualcomm explains: "At Qualcomm Technologies, good is never good enough - for us or our customers. As a leading wireless technology innovator, we constantly drive progress to bring you the best technology solutions and experiences. Today, that pursuit comes in the form of initiating a new era of connectivity supporting both Wi-Fi 7 and next-gen Bluetooth connectivity: Qualcomm FastConnect 7800, the world's fastest and most versatile connectivity system".

You've got up to 5.8Gbps depending on the network and other factors, which are some big bragging points of the next-gen Wi-Fi 7 standard. We should expect Qualcomm's new Wi-Fi 7-powered devices in the coming months, and more so into the end of the year and into 2023.
