Wi-Fi 7 has arrived: Here's exactly what that means for gaming


Gaming industry revenue is estimated to have exceeded $208 billion in 20221. In the U.S. alone, approximately 165 million people play video games, averaging 24 hours per week on their electronic devices, ranging from personal computers and laptops to mobile phones. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headset usage is significantly on the rise, with more than 25% of gamers planning to obtain a headset in the next 12 months2. 

Wi-Fi is continuously improving with each generation and the addition of dual band simultaneous (DBS) in Wi-Fi 6 improved latency significantly. However, the continuous evolution of games require superior internet connections that can meet today's demanding gaming requirements: reliable low latency, consistent high throughput and minimal jitter. And now, the introduction of Wi-Fi 7 brings innovative technologies into the mix that can alleviate these concerns.
