I have an Intel 'Ice Lake' Core I5-1035G7 in my Dell Inspiron 5593 laptop and want to upgrade to an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201. Since in theory I should have a CVNio2 because it is in the processor since the PCH is now contained within. Or back step and replace the Qualcomm QCA9377 controller with an Intel 9560.
Just upgrading the network.
As stated in the previous post my current one is a cvnio mark 1; the ax series is cvnio mark 2. No dice on data sheets. The closest I can imagine it takes an ice lake or newer processor to deal with this issue. I just want verification.
Thanks retired Intel fellow.

They are pin to pin compatible in the sense of using a M2 type E. The AX series of Intel will allow me to utilize 802.11ax with my new fancy router. I just do not want to toss cash in the trash if it does not work. This might be helpful, might be redundant (middle age sucks). My laptop has a core I5-1035G7 processor.
