Intel announces draft 11n chipset

Intel today officially introduced its draft 802.11n chipset. The company described its Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N network connection, as "an upgrade to the wireless component found inside Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology and other Intel-based laptops".

The release contained no hard specs and was even vague on whether the product has dual-band capability (it does). It was noted, however, that the new chipset offers "up to five times the performance and twice the wireless range" and would provide "up to an extra hour of notebook battery life" when compared to existing Draft-N products.
