The company says it’s the first to provide a chipset that handles 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Draft N: That sounds right. While I’m opposed to pre-release Draft 1.0 N devices, it’s still nice to see sophisticated chips hit the market. The closer to the Draft 2.0 release, the more likely a Draft N chipset will be upgradable to the certified version, too. Metalink says their chips include entire alphabets of standards, including 802.11e (quality of service for voice, streaming media) and 802.11h (international use of 5 GHz band). They say their chips can handle three simultaneous 20 Mbps HDTV streams at 60 feet (60 Mbps in aggregate), covering a home.
