Metalink plans wireless chipset with 240 Mbps throughput

metalink chipsChipset developer Metalink has announced what the company says is an 802.11n-compliant chipset that can achieve speeds of 240 Mbps (of course, since 802.11n technically isn't a standard yet, it's not really compliant). Metalink is marketing the chipset to the home-video industry, including makers of HDTV sets and DVRs. With any luck, we'll see some real streaming video equipment based on this sometime next year.
