MediaTek recently stated that it would be showing off a WiFi 7 demo at CES 2022. During a presentation for a company event, MediaTek highlighted how WiFi 7 could be up to 2.4 times faster than the existing WiFi 6 standard, and that it will be showing off a WiFi 7-capable device at the technology expo next year.

During an in-house event, MediaTek representatives recently stated that they would be demonstrating a WiFi 7 capable device at CES 2022, and also provided some insights into the new standard. While they didn't say who would be the first adopter of WiFi 7, MediaTek stated that they'd be one of the earliest.

While not many technical details were shared, according to the presentation, WiFi 7 will be up to 2.4 times faster than the existing WiFi 6 standard, and feature lower latency. 

That last point, in particular, could have major implications for cloud gaming. While many cloud gamers have enough bandwidth to accommodate 1080p or even 4K/60 play, latency remains an issue for the moment-to-moment cloud gaming experience. Lower latency WiFi 7-compatible hardware could shave precious milliseconds off, making for a better cloud gaming experience across the board. 

It'll be interesting to see exactly what WiFi 7 device MediaTek will be demoing at CES next year and how fast uptake will be with other chip makers like Qualcomm.
