    Intel AX200/22260 or AX201/22560. Basically analogous to the 9260ac and 9560ac.

    AX200 would be the full fledged WiFi card.
    AX201 is also M.2 but it’s a cNVIO, RF only card with the WiFi chipset portion in the Intel CPU.

    I would expect to see Intel contracted factories selling these on the side pretty soon, just like the 9260ac this year. So my guess is probably by the end of next month for those who want to to buy the card.

    Here's what Asus has to say about their Mothership gaming notebook.

    "The ROG Mothership leaves gigabit networking in the dust starting with a 2.5G Ethernet controller that more than doubles the speed of typical wired ports. It’s paired with a next-generation Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 module that pushes peak throughput up to 2.4Gbps under ideal conditions. The wireless module is based on the standard otherwise known as 802.11ax, which in addition to boosting flat-out speed, borrows techniques from the cellular industry to improve traffic management and overall efficiency for busy networks."

    pretty interesting stuff and just the right timing :) we just upgraded to 1 Gbit internet in our home and our current 7260/7265 wifi adapters cant keep up anymore haha :p so time for an upgrade and so far i had the 9260 in mind. but looks like waiting a bit would make sense :)

    IEEE 802.11ax or Wifi -6 is bump up like sata 1 to sata 2, ect, it wont jump it up like sata 3 to Nvme, ax is 38% faster than ac,,wikipedia states it will be 4x faster throughput to the average user, time will tell, yet I think it will be a bump up rather than a jump and of course a router with ax capabilities will be needed as well

    @3Fees well 802.11ad was a jump in speed and latency, implemented somewhat poorly though. 802.11ay should address the biggest shortcomings of it.

    Pretty unexpected of HP, since up until kaby lake they're still including the 7265 m.2 wlan card on most of their laptops.
