wondering if i can upgrade my ax-1675x to an ax1690i (ax411) or the "killer" version of the ax211. i have an hp spectre x360 15-bl152nr prod id z4z39ua#aba i have a one TB ssd Samsung pro 980 and 32GB RAM with a Corsair vengeance pack intstalled. i just got a new 6E GIG+ service installed and i want full potential as i edit photos and frequent clouds quite often
The AX1675x is a non-CNVi part. Unless the socket that you are plugging it into actually has support for CNVi (in this case, CNVio2), you cannot use the AX1690i nor the AX411. At the same time, the AX1675x is functionally equivalent to the AX210 and AX211 but, since these parts do not have the Killer optimizations in their firmware/drivers, this would actually be a downgrade.
It should be obvious that HP needs to answer whether the socket they provided actually supports CNVIO2 and whether this upgrade is supported in their BIOS implementation, etc. If not, you are out of luck.
