Upgrade Intel Wireless-AC 8265 to AX201 on NUC8i7HVK

Hi,

 

I am currently using the Intel® NUC Kit NUC8i7HVK. Can i upgrade my wireless from the Intel Wireless-AC 8265 + Bluetooth 4.2 to the Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX201?

1.I would rather choose AX 200 then AX 201. The AX 200 has standard connector interface M.2 : PCIe, USB (same as in AC 8265), while AX 201 has M.2: CNVio2 interface.

2. Please read this thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/intelnuc/comments/chxbr5/wifi_6_on_hades_canyon_for_less_than_20/

So the AX200 should work ok?

 

There were some replies online at the amazon page saying this requires 10th gen cpu.. any truth to that? any idea?

  1. AX200 should work. I don't have this adapter, however, you may read the report from other user (see para.2 in my post above), confirming this.
  2. I don't see any requirement for 10th generation CPU in the data sheet https://gzhls.at/blob/ldb/1/b/f/6/bcfcd25c37dd3e565c26d773a4ecc5476665.pdf
  3. CNVio2 interface, used in AX201 adapter, requires the Intel 400 series chipset and 10th gen processor to work.

None. I installed an AX200 on a 6th gen and it works as it should.
