Gigabyte’s Wi-Fi 7 PCIe card preps your desktop for a faster wireless future

With the Wi-Fi 7 specification set to be finalized early next year, Gigabyte is now offering a PCIe Wi-Fi 7 card, called the GC-WIFI7, that is perfect for upgrading current and older desktop PCs to the latest wireless standard.

The card comes in a small half-height, single-slot form factor, featuring a PCIe x1 interface that connects to the motherboard. It supports all of the major features Wi-Fi 7 supports, including MU-MIMO, 4K-QAM, MRU, and MLO which enables the card to utilize the 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz bands simultaneously to transmit and accept data. Bandwidth is rated at up to 5800Mbps. On top of this, the GC-WIFI7 also comes with Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity for connecting wireless peripherals, audio gear, phones, and more.

The Wi-Fi card also comes with an antenna housed in a magnetized black plastic shroud, that should be easy to manage and tuck away, especially on steel and iron surfaces.
