Modern (2014 or newer) HMC (Half Mini Card) WLAN cards?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My 2014 laptop has a HMC slot containing a 2.4 GHz-only WLAN card.

 

I want to upgrade the card to one capable of 5.0 GHz.

 

I know the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 (released 2013) is available in this format (model 7260HMW).

 

However, whilst that WLAN card supports 5 GHz, it's quite old and supports Bluetooth 4.0 only.

Does anyone know of a more recent (2014 or newer) HMC WLAN card?

That doesn't help as they're all equally as old.

 

Was hoping for one that supports Bluetooth 4.1 or above.

Struggling to find it for sale in the UK. Plus, I'd be concerned about the driver support.

 

Still, I'll try to find it :) Bluetooth 5.0 really would be nice.

What is the need for BT5 specifically?

Nothing, specific. Just nice to have and I'm sure it'll come in useful.
