Intel Announces 4965AGN Wireless

Intel has announced a new Mini-PCIe wireless card, with the inclusion of draft-n capabilities:

The 4965agn is an upgrade to the existing 3945abg wireless card currently shipping with Centrino notebooks. The 4965agn card is based on the draft 802.11n Wi-Fi specification. Intel claims the new Wireless-N technology will offer up to five times the performance and twice the wireless range as existing 802.11g wireless. Intel is also claiming that the 4965 card will offer greater battery life than notebooks with the existing Centrino 3945abg card.

Intel has also announced a program called "Connect with Centrino". Through this program, Intel has worked with leading access point (AP) vendors including Asus, Belkin, Buffalo, D-Link and Netgear to better ensure compatibility and performance. Intel's wireless-N product is certified to work with multiple APs and as these AP's successfully pass Intel's rigorous real-world testing certification criteria, they will display a "Connect with Centrino" identifier on their product packaging, allowing consumers a choice for connecting with more confidence.
