    You can upgrade it if you want. I don't notice a difference between my 9260 and any of my killer wireless cards.

    Hi Thanks. Sorry should have clarified. I assume it will be an upgrade and perform subtlety better than the stock wireless 8265?

    Sorry at first I was thinking 9260 not 7260. A 7260 is a step down from the 8265. Are you sure it's a 7260 that you're thinking about? The 7260 was discontinued by intel.

    No worries, I was thinking the same at first. Anyway it's likely an upgrade you wouldn't notice in my opinion. If you get one for a few bucks then sure, but I wouldn't spend much on one for something that likely won't be an issue anyway.

    You can compare the two here:

    I upgraded my 7577 from a 8265ac to a 9260ac but that mainly makes sense if you have a HT160 capable router (Netgear R7800) and a NAS. HT160 allows me to hit 900-920 Mbps in real world use when doing transfers to my laptop from my NAS. Otherwise if you don’t have a HT160 capable router, you may only get modest to no gains over the Intel 8265ac and the Qualcomm 6174A (Sometimes re-branded as Killer 1535). The 9260ac also is the only card that has Bluetooth 5.0 granted not many clients at the moment but it works well with my BT5.0 Anker Spirit X earphones. I got the 9260ac in the early days for about for about $26 which is a decent price for some modest upgrades vs other wireless cards (namely BT5.0 & HT160). It should only be a few bucks more than it’s peers.

    At the moment the Netgear R7800 and it’s rebadged XR500 twin are the only ones that do MU-MIMO and HT160 well without issues thanks to the excellent Qualcomm QCA9984 chipset. Seems some of the newer upcoming 802.11ax routers are also going to include HT160, including one I am about to beta test.

    You could even maybe eek out another extra 100-200 (to reach 1,000-1,100 Mbps) in HT160 on the 9260ac with a 10G connection to a target NAS if you have an R9000, but that would just not be worth the cost or effort ;).

    Hello everyone. I have Inspiron 7577 with 1060, i7 7700hq and 16gb of ram. Is 617-619 Marks score in Intel XTU's benchmark considered to be low? Some people who have laptops with same CPU get 1000 marks (without overclocking).

    Hi everyone. I have one of these 7577s, and I'm planning on upgrading the RAM. I was hoping to use something like HyperX Impact or Crucial Ballistix Sport LT, but when I searched the BIOS to check if there was an XMP feature, I couldn't find it. Does that mean that it's completely non existent on the Dell 7577, or is it a setting that still might appear if you install the XMP compatible RAM? I know at least one person on this thread has reported using XMP successfully, I just want to check if anyone else can confirm that it is the case that the Dell 7577 can use XMP despite the apparently absent setting in the bios.

    Hi guys. I didn't read all this topic, but i need help. I have Inspiron 7577 with only SSD Toshiba 256GB (KXG50ZNV256G NVMe) and i have very slow write speed. I've read some topics about this problem, but i cannot find solution. I have Windows 10 in AHCI mode and speeds are 2700/340, but it should be like 2700/1000. I would be very grateful, if someone tell me how to solve this problem...

    Yeah I’m also interested in a reply to jak’s post above. Also what is a good utility to measure HDD & SSD performance?

    My question is whether it’s worth swapping out the 5400 for a 7200 hdd? Seems like a relatively inexpensive upgrade. I’m aware of the importance of choosing a 7mm hdd rather than a 9.5mm version.
