ASUS today announced PCE-AC88, a dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi PCI ExpressÂ® (PCIeÂ®) adapter that instantly upgrades a desktop PC to the latest ultra-fast wireless standard. PCE-AC88 is the first PCIe adapter to feature a 4×4 (4 transmit, 4 receive) MIMO design that delivers AC3100-class speeds of up to 2100Mbps on the 5GHz band and 1000Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. For the best signal reception, PCE-AC88 includes a magnetic antenna base that allows flexible placement of the four detachable external antennas on any suitable surface.
PCE-AC88 allows PC users to take advantage of the latest high-speed 802.11ac routers, which offer wireless speeds that match or exceed wired Gigabit Ethernet networking speeds. When paired with a 4×4 802.11ac router, PCE-AC88 unleashes the full performance and coverage potential of the 4×4 MIMO technology, but it is also backward-compatible with all existing Wi-Fi standards.
â€¢ Instantly upgrade a desktop PC to dual-band 4×4 802.11ac Wi-Fi with AC3100 speeds of up to 2100Mbps (5GHz band) and 1000Mbps (2.4GHz band)
â€¢ Delivers better coverage and up to 60% faster Wi-Fi speeds than 3×3 802.11ac adapters
â€¢ External magnetic antenna base allows flexible antenna placement for the best possible reception
Still can’t get the signal? Upgrade your system instead of the router, you could even hop on a neighbour’s Wi-Fi signal should there be a need that arise some day.
