LOL! It's almost ironic that you have to ask this question!

In general, the cards should work in any system that provides a M.2 Type E connector. Where things may get a little dicey though, is with AMD's support for PCIe 4.0. AFAIK, Intel is only validating its cards in connectors with PCIe 3.0 support. Still, PCIe 4.0 is supposed to be backwards-compatible with PCIe 3.0. Provided there are no unforeseen issues, it should work. Still, there *have* been a couple of posts here regarding problems getting it working.

There is a big 'BUT' to be taken into account: Some of the Intel Wireless cards definitely cannot be used with AMD processors and chipsets. These cards provide only a portion of the full Wireless solution and they require that they be matched with a chipset that provides the remainder of the solution (and a motherboard that supports the interconnect between the two). This is akin to the PHY-MAC split that you see in many of Intel's Ethernet solutions. To make things even more complicated, there are two different versions of the interconnect! The Wireless-AC 9461, 9462 and 9560 cards require support for the first gen interconnect, known as CNVi or CNVio. The WiFi 6 AX201 card, on the other hand, requires support for the second gen interconnect, known as CNVio2. Bottom line, these four cards simply cannot be used with AMD processor and chipset solutions.

Bottom line, the cards you might try to integrate are the Dual-Band Wireless-AC 9260, the Tri-Band Wireless-AC/AD 18265 or (best choice) the WiFi 6 AX200. My recommendation is the AX200.

Hope this helps,

P.S. There are also two new solutions that I do not know that much about yet, the WiFi 6E AX210 and the Killer WiFi 6E AX1675.

IMHO, that's the best choice if you have a standard (i.e. non-CNVio) M.2 Type E connector and you want support for up to 2400Mb/s xfers, Wireless-AX, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1. Here is a link to download the AX200's product brief: Download PDF.

P.S. In North America, you can order the AX200 card on Amazon for less than US$18. See here:
