AMD has teamed up with MediaTek to introduce their latest Wi-Fi solution, called the AMD RZ600 series Wi-Fi 6E module. It features the MediaTek Filogic 330P chipset inside and is designed to power the next generation of AMD Ryzen series laptops and desktops starting in 2022.
The Filogic 330P chip provides support for 2 × 2 Wi-Fi 6 (2.4 / 5GHz) and 6E (range 6GHz to 7.125GHz), along with Bluetooth 5.2 (BT / BLE). It supports speeds up to 2.4Gbps and a new 6GHz spectrum at 160MHz channel bandwidth.
It also features MediaTek’s power amplifier (PA) and low noise amplifier (LNA) technology, which optimizes power consumption and makes it ideal for laptops, writes FoneArena.
