802.11ac wireless is coming out, and touted to provide speeds up to 433 Mbps.

However, one of it's most important features, multiuser MIMO, won't be available until the 2nd generation 802.11ac chipsets are expected to come out, some time in 2014.

Multiuser MIMO enables the access point to simultaneously communicate with up to four clients.

Also possibly interesting to anyone who has achieved a chub at this point:

Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully I'll remember (I hadn't planned to upgrade, but when stuff dies, it's usually easier).
