High-speed multi-gigabit 60GHz WiFi, speeds of up to 4.6Gbps

2016 is the year of multi-gigabit 802.11ad WiFi. At least, according to Qualcomm, it is. WiFi speeds of up to 4.6Gbps, High-speed multi-gigabit 60GHz WiFi: Coming soon to a TP-Link router near you.

The second generation Yun (Tian) supports 5GHz WiFi. The third generation Yun supports 60GHz WiFi?

There is no fastest, only faster.

There is no fastest, only faster.

Let WS(x) be the WiFi speed for a chip set x; if WS(C) >= WS(Ci), for any chip set C and Ci, the chip set C has the fastest WiFi speed of all chip sets :wink:

kind regards,

Li-Fi has just been tested in the real world, and it's 100 times faster than Wi-Fi. 4,869% faster than 60GHz WiFi. With scientists achieving speeds of 224Gbps in the lab using Li-Fi earlier last year (2015)

It would not take long to fill (or empty) a Yun RAM at 4.6Gbps.

Is such a speed really useful for a Yun?

How about Yun V?

sonnyyu: How about Yun V?

You tell me!

Personally I don't see the point in small boards evolving to acquire most of the capabilities of a laptop - it's not as if laptops are prohibitively expensive.

Just because you CAN does not mean your SHOULD.

Caution you need compile Qca9005 driver yourself since it is at early stage.

That won't be necessary as I won't be using it. :)

My 8Mhz Atmega 328 with an nRF24 is fine.
