AMD and MediaTek will offer board manufacturers an alternative to Intel WLAN

It is Intel that dominates the integrated Wi-Fi solution for PC motherboards, especially WiFi 6 and WiFi 6E. AMD would like to change that with the help of MediaTek, so we have a competitive solution, after all, motherboards for Ryzens today usually use modules with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth using Intel hardware, of course, if they have them at all and are often installed in them. and Ethernet controllers from Intel, if it’s not Realtek, but that’s a bit different song.

We have the new AMD RZ600 controllers, which are based on the MediaTek Filogic 330P chipset and combine WiFi 6 and 6E (6 GHz) with Bluetooth 5.2.

Specifically, it is an AMD RZ616 Wi-Fi 6E module with Wi-Fi 6E 2×2 and 160MHz channels for throughput of up to 2.4 Gb / s, which will be available for interfaces M.2 2230 and 1216. Weaker AMD RZ608 Wi-Fi module The 6E will be equipped with 80MHz Wi-Fi channels for a maximum of 1.2 Gb / s and will only be offered on the M.2 2230.

Due to the standardized interface, it only depends on the board or computer products, where and how these products will be used, and could logically be future motherboards for Ryzens and laptops with APUs from AMD. We will see if the board manufacturers will prepare a new wave of models for the Ryzeny 6000, which will again be designed for the AM4 socket, and no new chipset is expected, but we can expect that companies will not miss this opportunity.

Finally, we can still mention the report from Anandtechu, according to which the RZ608 is just a rebranded MediaTek MT7921K.
