[prMac.com] Wichita, Kansas – 802.11ac wireless is fast – as much as twice the speed of the previous 802.11n wireless of the built-in MacBook wireless card. This high-speed wireless provides streaming video, video conferencing with no hiccups, fast media file downloads and nearly instant web browsing. QuickerTek offers internal wireless cards which provide older Macs with 802.11ac capabilities.
Any last generation MacBook Pro or Air running Mac OS X 10.10.x and a PCIe bus is a candidate for the qCard 2 or qCard 3. Bluetooth 4.0 LE is also added with this product as the qCard 2 and 3 uses the same number of internal antennas as the latest generation MacBooks. Installation is easy, saving you money on “hidden costs” for repair shop labor.
There are two qCards engineered by QuickerTek to match what is inside your Mac. The Macbook Air models have two internal antennas which is why we call it a qCard 2 and the Macbook Pro models have three antennas thus the name qCard 3. Utilizing the same chipset and drivers as the new MacBook Air or Pro model, this card can be used to upgrade PCIe Mac models to the newly announced Wi-Fi standard of 802.11ac. The Blue Tooth 4.0 LE is also added and uses the same number of internal antennas as the latest generation of Macs with 10.10.x. You can get double the speed you’re getting now with the 802.11n wireless network. 802.11ac uses the 5 gHz spectrum as well as 2.4 gHz standard used with 802.11n.
qCard 2 and 3 Features:
* Delivers the fastest wireless speeds to older MacBook Pro and Air
* Delivers Bluetooth 4.0 LE to older MacBook Pro and Air
* Leaves USB ports free
* User installable
* Very low cost
