The STATUS does not indicate EOL: http://ark.intel.com/products/75439/Intel-Dual-Band-Wireless-AC-7260 Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 Product Specifications
However, it is more than 4 years old, so how much time can be left...
Question: Is this for a desktop or laptop?
I cannot answer that.
However, I have to let you know that these adaptors are only to be installed by OEMs and integrators:
