The new mobile chips are the first to take advantage of the 802.11g standard, which was formally approved last week. 802.11g is the high speed (54Mbps) wireless networking technology that is backward compatible with the slower 802.11b (sometimes referred to as Wi-Fi). AMD says it had been waiting for the standard to be finalized before announcing compatible products.
