Asus & Broadcom 802.11ac WiFi Review: Engadget


Asus and Broadcom 802.11ac WiFi Hands On Review! In the back corner of ASUS’ brightly lit Computex booth there’s a simulated gamer’s lair, complete with dim LED lighting, the sound of frequent gun fire and a small handful of nondescript gaming notebooks. The G75VW is one such device, but in addition to the Ivy Bridge Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GTX 670M and massive 17.3-inch LCD, this otherwise standard portable rig includes one very important distinction: it’s the very first of its kind to pack 802.11ac WiFi.

  1. I did a quick calculation on how fast the transfer speed for both wireless standards on this test and this is what I got.

    Wireless AC:
    449MB / 20s = ~22.45MB/s

    Wireless N:
    449MB / 62s = ~7.24MB/s

  2. for everyone complaining that it's a video for wireless N. would you rather involve hdd read speed for multiple file transfers and skew the results? Or have a recording of the same test played back in real time while the other test is live? Here I was worried they would transfer the same large file from the same hard disk at the same time and get bad data.

  3. Yeah well.
    It is not quiet objective the demonstration taking into account that the router is like 1 m away. Nobody at home does WLAN connection for over a meter. In most households it would be really likely to have first dozens of devices connected to the router in the same spectrum sharing the media and couple of walls more between them. So at the end i guess the net throughput in a AC network will drop from these 400Mbps to about 200 or even less which is still good though.
