I am getting a new laptop and have the option of two wifi cards and would like to know if there is any advantage for either one.
1) Wifi 6 AX201 plus BT (standard)
2) Bigfoot Killer AX1650X plus BT ($25 extra)
I don't have a wifi 6 router yet, but maybe some day. Currently have an Asus RT-AC68U with Merlin firmware

Get the AX210. It's 6E, which you'll want when you get a 6E router. The Killer card is Wi-Fi 6 and basically an Intel AX200.

Sorry. mixed up my numbers. Get the standard card. The two are basically the same AX200 Wi-Fi 6 design.
