Hi guys,

Gigabyte technical confirmed it's not support.

For people that confuse as me about AX201.

You should ask gigabyte what cards are compatible with their board. They would have (should have) done the testing.

Though you can insert AX201 into a standard M.2 Key E socket, contact Gigabyte to verify compatibility.

  1. Thank you for your update.
  2. And I would add that information provided on this page is not correct: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000026155/network-and-i-o/wireless-networki.... The AX201 has System Interface TypeM.2: CNVio2 wich is not backwards compatible to System Interface TypeM.2: CNVio? I would like to see answer fro this.

Hi LWAKSMAN,

As my searching in few last days, That link which is meaning Intel called CNVi in general ( inclued CNVio & CNVio2 )

 

  1. About CNVio:

CNVio support 8th 9th CPUs & early + Mainboard 300 series ----> AC9560

CNVio2 support only for 10th CPUs & later + Mainboard 400 series ----> AX201

 

2. About System interface type:

M.2: AC9560 & AX201 use same port but depending on CPU & mainboard as upper.

PCIe: AC9260 & AX200 ( PC need PCIe1x adapter )

 

Hope I correct ^.^ LOL

I would like to see Intel document specifying the requirement relating cnvio2 and cnvio compatibility with CPU and Chipset (i.e your statement in 1 above). Did you see one?
