Last January at CES Broadcom teased us with the idea of a Gigabit-speed Wi-Fi system that would work great with mobile phones, about three times faster than the current Wi-Fi standard, in fact. Nearly a half year later, the time for teasing and hinting is seemingly over as Broadcom has officially announced its BCM 4335 chipset and the new 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard.
It’s remarkable to see how far Asus has come in terms of hardware manufacturing. There was a time when Intel would supply its latest processors to larger and better reputed companies such as IBM, all the while Asus played second fiddle to the larger companies, but that was the 90’s. Now in 2010 Asus’s new Eee 1005PR Netbook is truly a winged horse of ancient Greek mythology.
The Asus Eee 1005PR Netbook packs quite a punch with its Broadcom Crystal HD accelerator chip, this means HD playback for video streams is a go. You won’t have to worry about jittering freezing pictures, just a smooth cinematic experience.
