    I'll wait for the MSI thank you. I don't trust Mr. Azor's throttling taptops :rolleyes:

    Do we have confirmation that is the main difference?

    So does that mean the 9560 is a higher end version (as we'd expect from the higher number)?

    Here are the product briefs:

    They seem to be about the same price.

    @HiveMind from my understanding 9560 has electrically different interface and is missing some functionality now included in some latest CPUs.

    It's interesting - we have one user claiming that it is a big upgrade and another disappointed. Seems to be very much a Your Mileage May Vary type of release.



    Thanks. It seems like the 9260 might be the one to get.

    There may be driver issues, but spec-wise 9260/9560 is a major upgrade, also bringing Bluetooth 5 to PC.

    Ive had zero issues with the driver. The bluetooth range has also dramatically increased as well. I couldnt be happier.

    If you dont have a router that can aggregate multiple 1gb connections to a single device you wont be transferring over about 800megs a sec.....
