Hello guys, I am pretty interested to upgrade my wireless card, and I'm currently looking into a few cards, Intel Wireless-AC 9260 and 8260, and I'm most interested into getting 9260. I know that 8260 is compatible with my laptop, the Asus ROG GL752VW, however I couldn't get any answers whether is 9260 compatible with my laptop. I've tried to contact Asus to ask about it but I couldn't get any relevant answer, and it takes them almost a week to reply to a single inquiry. I would appreciate any suggestions given as well. Thanks!
Oh by the way my laptop runs in Windows 10 version 1709.
Here are the links to the cards that I'm interested in getting:

Thanks for posting.
As suggested by Al_Hill, we recommend waiting for Asus* reply on whether or not Intel® Wireless-AC 9260 is compatible with Asus ROG GL752VW*.
Judging by form factor alone (PCIe M.2 2230, same as Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260), the adapter might work with the laptop. However just like any other device, not all wireless adapters are physically and electrically compatible with all systems. Therefore the integration must be validated by the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
