Performance Wireless 802.11ax (WIFI6)
For our tests, we emulate what you would get performance-wise inside a house with a multi-level concrete ground and 1st floor as well as a 5-meter test separated by walls. We test Single-band 2.4 GHz and single-band 5 GHz. The router (host) is positioned at ground level and we test with a client (laptop) in several stages.
Performance Wireless 802.11ax WIFI6E
Most enthusiast-class motherboards these days have integrated Wi-Fi, with many standards. One of the more interesting ones is Wireless AC AKA 802.11ac (WIFI5) and as of recent 802.11ax (WIFI6). Motherboards that have such a unit will now be tested here at Guru3D.com. Wireless AX draft 802.11ax technology was developed to optimize video streaming experiences. Providing Gigabit Wi-Fi speeds allows content to download faster and large video or music files to sync more quickly. An increasing number of Wi-Fi devices in the home leads to greater internet consumption.
Wi-Fi 6E is an extension of the Wi-Fi 6 standard or 802.11ax that is now supported on most motherboards also. The E stands for Extended and the main feat of the expansion is the addition of support for the 6GHz band, which runs from 5925MHz to 7125MHz. Compatibility with older Wi-Fi standards will remain, and Wi-Fi 6E will thus have three bands: 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz. Below the AX 2.4 and 5 GHz, single-link connection.
In the Z790 motherboard reviews we'll also check out the new 6GHz, 6E band.
