MediaTek asserts that its Wi-Fi 7 tech is taking off as of 2023, with an upcoming range of devices based on its new flagship Filogic 880 chipset for this purpose. The OEM has now also confirmed that it will be a part of Lenovo's upcoming Legion series. Its Wi-Fi 7 solution has also been chosen to pair with the next generation of AMD Ryzen processors, as well as with that of testing and validation equipment.

MediaTek has come to Las Vegas to confirm that its flagship Wi-Fi 7 platform has attracted a number of client OEMs and partners already. The 6nm Filogic 880 chip is officially the one conferring upgrades to 320MHz channels, 4096-QAM modulation and Multi-Link Operation (MLO) aggregation on many other devices from a range of companies at CES 2023.

Lenovo, for example, has confirmed that it will handle the connectivity necessary for the "immersive, high-performance PC gaming experiences" to be delivered with the next generation of the Legion line-up, as has Asus for its own upcoming gaming line-up.

Furthermore, AMD has now indicated its intent to "combine" Wi-Fi 7 modules from MediaTek with Ryzen platforms. Companies such as TP-Link and Buffalo have also announced that they have taken the Filogic 880 up for inclusion in their own latest products.

Therefore, MediaTek's Wi-Fi 7 platforms will have a place in the laptops, routers and streaming devices of the future, as it asserted during the 880's launch. They will also have a role in industry, however, having been chosen by the wireless testing group LitePoint, as well as electronics and semiconductor validation specialists NI.

Finally, Korea Telecom now backs MediaTek Wi-Fi 7 tech to deliver the "throughput" necessary to satisfy next-gen consumer demand for connectivity-driven entertainment and communication.
