Intel i7-8700 and WIFI card ax201

Hello,

I just got a desktop HP EliteDesk 800 G4 which has a Intel i7-8700 @3.20 GHz. Motherboard is provided with M2. slot for a WI-FI Intel® 9560 802.11AC 2x2 with Bluetooth® M.2 Combo Card non-vPro™. I have a WI-FI 6 router and would love to use an Intel WI-FI 6 AX 201 (which I read is the new version of the 9560) but I ma not sure if this card is compatible with my processor; I read in several tech posts that AX 201 is compatible only with 10th generation Intel processor and mine is a 8th generation. Should I use the AX 200 instead? 

Any help is truly appreciated.

To answer the question, no, they are not compatible. The 9560 utilizes the CNVio interconnect whereas the AX201 (and AX211) utilize the CNVio2 interconnect.
The ugly truth is that systems that utilize the 9560 are not upgradable.
