Intel® Wireless-AC 9560 in MSI Z390-A PRO Motherboard with Intel Core i7 9700

Good night,

 

I have a MSI Z390-A PRO motherboard with a M.2 slot with E key for Integrated Intel® Wireless-AC(CNVi) module only that is not being used. On this motherboard i have an i7 9700, so can i put an Intel Wireless-AC 9560 card in that m.2 slot? Is this processor compatible with this wifi card?

 

Thanks and have a nice week.

You can only use CNVi-enabled modules on motherboards and processors designed to support them. You can use non-CNVi modules just about anywhere, however - including on boards that have support for CNVi.

 

Myself, I would be purchasing a AX200 module before a AC9560. Cost is about the same but AX200 give you Wireless-AX and WiFi 6.

 

Hope this helps,

My motherboard supports CNVi module, as i said in the question. My doubt here is if the processor i have in the motherboard can support this Intel Wireless-AC 9560. Thanks for the tip anyway.

It should; the support was rolled out with/in the 8th gen processors.
