New adapter among the first to provide AC connectivity to OS X

Networking company Amped Wireless announced today the launch of the ACA1 High Power 500mW Dual Band AC Wi-Fi USB Adapter. The ACA1 is one of the first long-range 802.11ac adapter on the market that is compatible with Mac laptops and desktops in addition to Windows computers. The ACA1 works with all Wi-Fi networks, and has been optimized for use with the recently-launched Amped Wireless RTA15 High Power 700mW Dual Band AC Wi-Fi Router.

The ACA1 features two high-gain, dual-band antennas and four total amplifiers for up to 500mW of power. The ACA1 provides up to three times the range of standard Wi-Fi adapters, and is backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n networks. It connects to the host computer using USB 3.0 for the fastest possible transfer speeds.

The ACA1 has a retail price of $90. It is available for pre-order from the Amped Wireless store today and ships July 22. It will be available at retailers late July.
