Intel prohibited setting a wireless hosted network for 5 GHz and for that reason, you can't get 802.11ac for hosting. This is to comply with regulations. You can buy a non-compliant card such as ASUS PCIE cards then you can set the hosted network frequency at the 5 GHz band without region restriction, letting you use 802.11ac

If you can modify the drivers to add a "Ad Hoc Channel for 802.11ac" on the advanced settings and selectable channels from 36 - 165 including DFS. Right now it's only 802.11 b/g on channel 1 - 11 for USA drivers. My ASUS PCE-AC56 card can change the "wzc ibss channel number" without any restrictions and you can even select DFS Channels as well as 20 Mhz, 40 MHz or 80 MHz channel width for your wireless hosted network.
