To me having 100Mbps and 2x2 MIMO is a significant feat for a low-power mobile device seeing that it is not tethered to a coal fired or nuclear power source. "50 percent power savings" is a good achievement for those of us making devices that have to sip power lightly.

Guys like CSR will eventually get acquired or might just become extinct. Looks like all the domains are slowly getting dominated by the system providers. Imagine that Qualcomm already has a chip which integrated multi core app engines, modems, wifi, bluetooth and FM all in one ASIC, its just a matter of time before they figure out NFC too.

2x2 MIMO in 2012 is more than a little disappointing... "The chips use either 2×2 MIMO or SISO 40MHz and are purportedly capable of reaching over 100Mbps Wi-Fi TCP throughput on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands," hmm for a chip release in 2012/13 thats only got 2x2 MIMO and only a little over 100Mbit/s real throughout is more than a little disappointing given 1 Gbit/s with 4x4 on the older 11N part of the chip is just around the corner.

Good news for the smartphone vendors. save cost and power by integrating all into a single chip. where does this leave the specialist chip makers in each area.. like say CSR for Bluetooth.

To achieve 60 percent cost reduction and a 30 percent power is quite an achievement. This chip will definitely help make NFC more popular, since even low end feature phones will be NFC enabled.
