Qualcomm's FastConnect 7800 is the first announced Wi-Fi 7 commercial product

Besides unveiling the world's first 5G modem-RF system with AI processor, Qualcomm also announced the world's first and fastest Wi-Fi 7 commercial product.

The Qualcomm FastConnect 7800 utilises High Band Simultaneous (HBS) Multi-Link technology to harness 5 and 6GHz bands at the same time to deliver the highest throughput and lowest sustained latency, while keeping the 2.4GHz band for Bluetooth and lower-bandwidth Wi-Fi.

It is able to hit peak speeds of up to 5.8Gbps (via single 320MHz or paired 160MHz channels) or 4.3Gbps where 6GHz spectrum may not available. In addition, latency can be sustained at less than 2ms and power efficiency can be improved 30 to 50%.

The FastConnect 7800 also supports Intelligent Dual Bluetooth which helps to cut the connection time by half and double the connection range. It also enables the seamless switching of a Bluetooth connection from smartphone to PC or earbuds to an automboile's hands-free system. 

Intelligent Dual Bluetooth boosts Snapdragon Sound technlogy to support 16-bit 44.1khz CD Lossless Bluetooth audio quality and 32kHz super wideband voice support for crystal clear calls.

Qualcomm says the FastConnect 7800 is sampling now with commercial availability in the second half of th year.
