Bluetooth

Performance varies by use, configuration and other factors.

Performance results are based on testing as of dates shown in configurations and may not reflect all publicly available updates. See configuration disclosure for details. No product or component can be absolutely secure.

Intel technologies may require enabled hardware, software or service activation.

Bluetooth® 5.2 functionality requires the use of similarly configured Bluetooth® peripherals and may require PC operating system feature support.

Intel® Bluetooth® audio offload capability requires an Intel® PC platform with integrated Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E technology and which is configured with an Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E Companion RF (CRF) module.

Claim Products/Technologies Segment Measurement Specification or Testing Information Claim/Test Date
Integrated Intel® Bluetooth® headset audio offload for VOIP (HFP) Hands Free Profile can save up to 20% (~500 mW) in platform power consumption vs. standard Bluetooth® headset use Intel® Bluetooth® on Intel® Core™ Platforms with Integrated Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) Consumer + Corporate

Integrated Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E products also include Integrated Intel® Bluetooth® technology.

Intel Hands Free Profile (HFP) audio offload testing and system power consumption measurements documented 496 mW (~19%) lower power consumption compared to what was seen with Bluetooth® Audio Offload disabled.

Platform: Intel® 11th Gen Core (TGL-U 42) Reference Validation Platform (RVP) LP4X B2, BT Module: Intel® AX201; Intel Smart Sound Technology: 10.29.00.4382-TGL-PRODFW-CERT-20H1; Intel® Bluetooth® SW: 21.110.0.3; Operating System: Windows 10 20H1; BIOS: XXXXXLP_​​CPSF_​​SEP5_​​450480_​​2020WW32.1.01.bin; Headset: Jabra Evolve 65; Skype Version: 8.64.0.80/15.64.80.0

Based on Intel enabling / testing (Oct-2020) Standard Bluetooth® Headset operation consumes more power than wired headsets due to multiple radio operation and CPU processing. Utilizing the audio decoder of the integrated wireless MAC in the platform chipset allows the CPU to consume less power.

Integrated Intel® Bluetooth® headset audio offload for media streaming (A2DP) Advanced Audio Distribution Profile can save up to 20% (~1000 mW) in platform power consumption vs. standard Bluetooth® headset use Intel® Bluetooth® on Intel® Core™ Platforms with Integrated Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) Consumer + Corporate

Integrated Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E products also include Integrated Intel® Bluetooth® technology.

Intel Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) audio offload testing and system power consumption measurements documented 1064 mW (~21%) lower power consumption compared to what was seen with Bluetooth® Audio Offload disabled.

Platform: Intel® 11th Gen Core (TGL-U 42) Reference Validation Platform (RVP) LP4X B2, BT Module: Intel® AX201; Intel Smart Sound Technology: 10.29.00.4382-TGL-PRODFW-CERT-20H1; Intel® Bluetooth® SW: 21.110.0.3; Operating System: Windows 10 20H1; BIOS: XXXXXLP_​​CPSF_​​SEP5_​​450480_​​2020WW32.1.01.bin;

Headset: Jabra Evolve 65; Skype Version: 8.64.0.80/15.64.80.0

Based on Intel enabling / estimates / early testing (Nov-2020) Standard Bluetooth® Headset operation consumes more power than wired headsets due to multiple radio operation and CPU processing. Utilizing the audio decoder of the integrated wireless MAC in the Intel® platform chipset allows the CPU to consume less power. A2DP offload requires Windows operating system support.

November- 2020
Intel® Bluetooth® 5.2 which is included with new Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) products is up to 2X faster than Bluetooth® 4.2 technology that ships on legacy Wi-Fi solutions. Intel® Bluetooth® on Intel® Core™ Platforms with Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) Consumer + Corporate

Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E products also include Intel® Bluetooth® technology. Based on the Bluetooth® SIG technology specifications, Bluetooth® 5.2 features enable up to 2 Mbps maximum theoretical data rates which are 2X faster vs. the 1 Mbps max rates enabled by legacy Bluetooth® 4.2.
