Intel quietly launches its speedy Wi-Fi 7 chipsets

Intel has quietly introduced its first consumer Wi-Fi 7 products; the Wi-Fi 7 BE200 and Wi-Fi 7 BE202. Even though the Wi-Fi standard is yet to be fully ratified by the IEEE until some time in 2024, the first motherboards with the BE200 controller are set to launch very soon, alongside the launch of Intel’s 14th Gen CPUs.

The two adapters have appeared on Intel’s Ark site (via TechPowerUp). The BE200 is listed as being ‘Wi-Fi 7 Pre-certified’. Its maximum speed is listed at 5Gbps, with 2×2 TX/RX streams and support for the 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz bands. For comparison, Intel’s AX211 Wi-Fi 6E controller tops out at 2.4Gbps.
