AMD has announced some new in-house Wi-Fi chips, developed in partnership with MediaTek. The RZ600 series of modules is based on the latter's latest technology for the connectivity standard, touted to support up-to-date wireless specs for PCs while saving power and optimizing speed.

AMD has announced new PC component that might be listed alongside the Ryzen processors found in next-gen laptops or desktops. The new RZ600 series of chipsets is designed to confer connectivity of standards up to that of Wi-Fi 6E on the machines.

AMD claims to have worked closely in collaboration with MediaTek for a "seamless" integration with other parts, USB and PCIe modules included. They are intended to co-ordinate processes such as power and sleep modes with Wi-Fi activation states.

These features are facilitated by the new Filogic 330P SoC by MediaTek. It is found in the AMD RZ608, an M.2 2230 module that supports 2x2 Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 via 80MHz channels with a PHY rate of up to 1.2 gigabits per second (Gb/s).

The RZ616, on the other hand, which supports 160MHz Wi-Fi channels, comes in M.2 2230 and 1216 SKUs and is rated for PHY rates up to 2.4Gb/s. Either new RZ600-series module might be found in a new PC soon.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
