Intel Wireless-N 100 replacement



I want to replace my wireless card Intel® Wireless-N 100.

The card that I was considering is the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260, but I'm not sure if they are compatible.

The form factor of Wireless-N 100 is PCIe Half MiniCard, but the 7260 is PCIe Half Mini Card/ M.2 (NGFF).

The compliance is the same in both: PCI, CISP, FIPS, FISMA

The system interface is different, in N100 is PCIe and in 7260 is PCIe/ USB

Here is the comparison between both:

So, are they compatible?

Thanks in advance!
