    Default Intel 7260?

    Are they released yet? I orignally found out about them trying to install Proset 16.0.0.0.3 but it turned out these only support the three variants of the 7260. A quick Google search later it looked like not a lot of websites are paying attention to this yet.

    One of the 3 supports AC, the other two seems to just differ in supporting vPRO or not (and N speed max!). All support bluetooth. I'll leave some Intel ARK links here if anyone is interested. Amazon has a page up but the item is unavailable. Found another site as well offering them for $29 dollars.

    Anyone has any idea when or if there will be 7300's out? Hoping for 3x3 AC with Bluetooth Hopefully these will use the digital magic Intel once spoke of to make them more energy efficient and things like that.

    Amazon (dead link now)
    Compsource (with price for AC model)

    Interesting how there's zero news about this. I just found out about the 7260 from the new Intel wifi driver in Linux kernel 3.9: kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git - Linux kernel source tree I only see support for two variants of the dual band AC 7260 and two variants of an (unannounced?) single band AC 3160. The two variants for each are probably a BIOS-whitelist-locked version and a regular version.

    I don't see the point in the wireless N models though, since neither are better than the 6235.

    Anyway, glad to see that the 7260 is only $29. It's good to see some cheaper AC-stuff for a change!

    I could be better if it's on a smaller production process, or if they use that digital magic I've once read about somewhere.. But I guess that's only going to lower heat and power consumption. I wish Intel would hurry up already and release the things, Perhaps launched alongside Haswell?

    Uhmm it is June already, they are up on ARK... but cannot find a seller.
    Could you provide your link Aeny?
    Thanks

    I am looking for the power consumption redux,
    My old Centrino wireless card On versus Off, produces between half to 1 hour of less battery run...

    I'd instantly buy one for potential powersavings and the fact that the last 4 or so drivers from Intel somehow destroy my 6300's speed. But to my knowledge no one actually reviewed/tested this card yet so there might be no reduction of power usage at all.

    I was actually referring to the compsource link in the OP.
    They claim to have stock and claim to ship on the same day. I've never ordered from that site but if you really want one give it a try I guess. Also make sure you're getting the RIGHT version since there seems to be 3 or so versions of the 7260.
    If you do order one/get one I'd love to hear back what you think of these cards.

    Interesting that it comes in both PCIe (HMC) and NGFF (M.2) version. Both single sided.

    Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260

    IntelĀ® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 Plus Bluetooth*

    Product Brief:
    http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www...ooth-brief.pdf

    As of this posting there's still no Windows 7/8 driver/software for this product on Intel Downloads

    Some notebook customizing resellers have the AC-7260 in stock.

    I'd much rather have a 3 antenna AC wireless card than a 2 antenna with Bluetooth.

    Yep, no official drivers as far as I know, but yesterday I found some again and upon inspecting why they would install but silently not install the driver I found out it was another 7260 driver only. Intel proset v 16.0.4.1 (64bit only)

    I'm also waiting for a 3x3 AC + bluetooth or a 3x3 AC only since I already got (really crappy) bluetooth build in. But since there seems to be no drivers for it and no mention in the linux kernel as far as I know perhaps there isn't going to be one soon.

    When I first saw the 16.0.4.1 Wireless ProSet I unpacked it but there wasn't an INF with supported wireless cards.

    Today there's a 16.0.5.3 driver version on station-drivers

    Hoping my AC-7260 is shipped today.

    Will be waiting for your feedback. I am also interested in that wireless card.
