    745745The 802.11ac standard which was developed from 2011 through 2013 and approved in Jan 2014, introduces some additions on top of the 802.11n standards:
    746  * widening the channel bandwidth (up to 160MHz)
    747  * increased MIMO spatial streams (up to 8 vs 4 in 802.11n)
    748  * multi-user MIMO (aka MU-MIMO)
    749  * high-density modulation (up to 256-QAM vs 64-QAM for 802.11n)
     746 * Widening the channel bandwidth (up to 160MHz)
     747 * Increased MIMO spatial streams (up to 8 vs 4 in 802.11n)
     748 * Multi-user MIMO (aka MU-MIMO)
     749 * High-density modulation (up to 256-QAM vs 64-QAM for 802.11n)

    751751Current popular hardware available supports up to 4x4 MU-MIMO and up to 160MHz channel bandwidths using VHT160 which can ''theoretically'' yield >2.0gbps of throughput. Some cards also support VHT80+80 which functions similarly to VHT160 but is composed to two 80MHz channels that do not need to be contiguous, which can help with band selection. Actual results will vary based on CPU and bus bottlenecks, driver performance, and RF characteristics.
