Presque trois fois plus rapide : la norme 802.11ax 2x2 160 MHz autorise un débit de données théorique maximal de 2 402 Mbit/s, soit presque trois fois (2,8 fois) plus rapide que la norme 802.11ac 2x2 80 MHz (867 Mbit/s), comme l'indiquent les spécifications de norme sans fil IEEE 802.11, et exige l'utilisation de routeurs réseau sans fil 802.11ax de configuration similaire.

Quatre fois plus de capacité et d'évolutivité : cet argument est fondé sur une comparaison de la capacité globale du réseau pour des réseaux 802.11ax par rapport aux réseaux 802.11ac. Le présent amendement de la spécification IEEE 802.11-14/0165r1 802.11ax définit les modifications normalisées apportées aux couches physiques IEEE 802.11 (PHY) et à la couche Medium Access Control (MAC) IEEE 802.11 afin de permettre au moins un mode d'exploitation en mesure de prendre en charge au moins un quadruplement du débit moyen par PC (mesuré au niveau du point d'accès au service [SAP] de données MAC) dans le cas de figure d'un traitement à forte densité, tout en maintenant ou en améliorant le rendement électrique par PC.

Réduction de la latence de 75 % : basée sur les données de simulation Intel (79 %) de la norme 802.11ax avec et sans OFDMA à l'aide de 9 clients. La latence moyenne est de 36 ms sans OFDMA, 7,6 ms avec OFDMA. L'amélioration de latence implique que le routeur 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) et tous les clients prennent en charge OFDMA.
