Raspberry Pi WiFi faster than Apple M2 MacBook Air?

Raspberry Pi enthusiast Jeff Gerling posted his first video of 2023 comparing the WiFi connection speed of a Raspberry Pi compute module versus his new Apple M2 MacBook Air laptop. Check out the interesting video below that shows just how fast the Pi Compute Module wireless can be with the right hardware.

Jeff uses his newly established WiFi 6E connection and shows how the new standard provides a huge upgrade over the previous WiFi 6 standard and discusses the possibilities of what could be available when WiFi 7 is rolled out in the near future. The presentation uses an Intel AX210 IEEE 802.11ax Bluetooth 5.2 WiFi/Bluetooth triband combo adapter connected to a Raspberry Pi. The hardware is available for purchase from online retailers for around $23 and offers connectivity over 6GHz, 5GHz. and 2.4 GHz wireless bands.
