AMD and Qualcomm team up to speed up Wi-Fi on your business laptop. Today, the two companies announced that they are working to bring Qualcomm FastConnect to PCs powered by AMD Ryzen processors, starting with business laptops using Ryzen Pro 6000 and Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 series chips.

This will bring Wi-Fi 6 and 6E to some commercial laptops, though they won’t be the first. But AMD and Qualcomm say that by also involving Microsoft in the collaboration, laptops including the HP EliteBook 805 series and Lenovo ThinkPad Z will take advantage of Windows 11 ‘s built-in wireless options .

Specifically, these laptops will use Windows 11 Wi-Fi Dual Station, which Qualcomm has pushed forward for gaming . (In fact, when this was announced in October 2021, AMD VP Jason Banta says the company planned to bring the technology to commercial laptops.

AMD is also boosting its AMD Ryzen Pro 6000 PC Manageability Processor for remote management. (However, laptop manufacturers will need to enable it for each laptop, so just because a laptop uses these chips doesn’t mean it will have the feature.)

“Remote out-of-band Wi-Fi management is an important tool for enterprise IT administrators to diagnose and resolve issues, even when the operating system is down,” Banta said in a press release. “AMD Ryzen PRO 6000 Series processors with Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 enable next-generation business laptops with the processing and connectivity tools needed to function in modern environments, bringing enterprise-grade remote manageability to users in the new location. of hybrid work.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Z-series and HP EliteBook 805 laptops were announced at CES and we expect to see them later this year.
