Hello edouard.leclercq,

 

 

I am writing to confirm the following information:

 

 

1. Wireless adapters were commonly available in two form factors including M.2 and PCIe Half Mini Card (HMC). Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 is our last adapter with the HMC form factor and this has been discontinued.

 

 

2. Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 and later wireless adapters will be manufactured in M.2 form factor only.

 

 

I hope you find this information helpful.
