ASRock Shows Off 802.11ac WiFi & Bluetooth 4.0 For A-Style Motherboards

We already know the five features that we're going to find on ASRock's A-Style motherboards, as we've already reported on a number of them before. The A-Style feature set includes: Purity Sound, HDMI-In, 802.11ac WiFi, Waterproof by Conformal Coating, and Home Cloud.

ASRock has decided to show off another two of these features: the 802.11ac WiFi and the Bluetooth 4.0. The 802.11ac WiFi standard runs on the 5 GHz band, and features data transfer speeds of up to 867 Mb/s. Of course, what better way to explain this if not in a little comedy sketch? Enjoy the video below.

  • What is the point of 802.11ac? You do know that if you have older laptops or computer that still uses b/g/n, you will not get AC. You need to spend alot more to upgrade in order to have AC mode working fully.

    Following that logic, cases shouldn't bother to have USB 3.0 because if you only have a USB 2.0 drive, you won't get 3.0 speeds.

    The point of it is to have the option there and to push the tech forwards in terms of mainstream adoption.

    If I using this wireless card meanwhile my internet speed is 384kbps (barely fast), the internet experience same as as before (no changes). If I do transfer file from network with this wireless card, I can get more speed than before.
