ASUS announced that its S6Fm, V1Jp, VX2, W2P and W6Fp notebooks will get Intel’s Next-Gen Wireless-N network connection technology. This technology is an upgrade to current wireless components found inside the Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology and will boost notebooks’ connection speeds up to five times and double their range.
Intel and ASUS claim the new Draft-N sollution will increase battery life by up to an hour, compared to previous Draft-N solutions.
“Integrating wireless-N technology into notebook computers based on Centrino Duo with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor delivers the speed, coverage and multi-tasking abilities needed for consumers to enjoy their home networking and digital entertainment,” said Dave Hofer, director of wireless marketing for Intel’s Mobile Platforms Group. “Additionally, access points that are identified by our new ‘Connect with Centrino’ logo assure consumers that they are purchasing a compatible wireless-N system.”
