I've read several claims that 802.11ac will end up saving battery power, even in receive mode.
I understand the claims that it will save power for transmit mode - even if that sounds like a good dose of marketing hype. But in receive mode too ?
Other than phone type devices, in transmit mode how is it going to help ? Are we talking about some type of "scheduled" reception.
Claims of improved sensitivity and better antennas contributing to battery savings sound like nonsense.
Does anyone have good intel on this?
