AX200 - Intel Wi-Fi 6
Wi-Fi technology definitely benefited from the fact that last year the Wi-Fi Alliance consortium decided to change the traditional names of 802.11xx standards to simple and understandable generation numbers - 4, 5, 6 and so on. If only because the sluggish Wi-Fi theme for many years suddenly suddenly got into the top in popularity: news, reviews, opinions can be found everywhere, including the very latest on Habré .
Meanwhile, although the Wi-Fi 6 standard has not yet been officially adopted, it is already beginning to be embodied in hardware - such as on the KDPV, for example, with the Intel logo.
The Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 adapter (codenamed Cyclone Peak) was released in the short M.2 card form factor and is designed for laptop computers (supported operating systems: Windows 10, 64-bit, Google Chrome OS, Linux). The maximum theoretical data rate is 2.4 Gb / s.
