Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411/AX1690 (Gig+)



The Intel® AX411 and AX1690 CRF1 (Companion RF) modules are the first products to support Intel® Double Connect Technology, enabling two simultaneous Wi-Fi connections. They are designed to support Wi-Fi 6 (and Wi-Fi 6E) technology in the 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 6GHz bands. They support improved TCP throughput and Wi-Fi 6 R2 features, including UL MU-MIMO2, which improves UL network capacity in dense environments, as well as support for Bluetooth® 5.3. These new features maximize the benefits of Wi-Fi 6, including Gigabit speed, ultra-low latencies, and enhanced reliability benefits across new radio frequencies exclusive to Wi-Fi 6E devices, and deliver a significant improvement in user experience in dense deployments. Combined with Intel® Core™ processors and exceptional Intel wireless innovations, the Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411 module can dramatically improve your connected experience at home, work, or on the go.

2nd Generation Intel Wi-Fi 6 Wireless with Extended Wi-Fi 6E (6GHz Band) Support



Greater Network Flexibility

Faster Speed

Reduced Latency

Wi-Fi 6E Tri Band 2x2 160MHz

The Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411 module supports Wi-Fi 4, 5, 6, and Wi-Fi 6E technologies including Wi-Fi 6 R2 features. By implementing the new Wi-Fi 6E technology, supporting the new 6GHz band that includes up to 1200MHz of new contiguous spectrum (>2x compared to 5GHz) with more Gigabit Wi-Fi options and exclusivity to Wi-Fi 6 products, the Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411 module maximizes Wi-Fi 6 and Gigabit Wi-Fi benefits, enabling greater network flexibility, faster downloads, sharing, and backups, as well as reduced latency and improved reliability.

When using Wi-Fi 6 technology with 1024QAM and 160MHz channels, the Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411 module can deliver nearly 3x higher peak data rates3 (up to 2.4Gbps), and up to 4x capacity improvement in dense or congested environments compared to Wi-Fi 54.

Bluetooth® 5.3 On top of existing features, Bluetooth® 5.3 includes an Isochronous Channel feature, which lays the foundation for the implementation of next generation of Bluetooth Low Energy Audio. The Bluetooth® 5.3 Core specification also provides the capability to change the transmit power of devices (local and peer) to improve the link quality without consuming extra power.
Microsoft* Windows* Full support for the latest Microsoft* Windows 11* OS required for Intel DCT support.

Form Factors

(M.2 2230 and 1625)

M.2 2230 modules enable system configuration and platform usage flexibility with the use of a standard Key E socket for attaching the module.

Intel® 1625 modules are design compatible with M.2 1216 CRF1 modules. Intel CNVio interface allows for flexible motherboard routing of up to 10''.

Experience the Intel® Difference


Intel® Double Connect Technology

On Microsoft* Windows 11* systems, provides the capability of connecting to both 2.4GHz and 5GHz (or 6GHz) networks simultaneously. Combined with Intel® Killer™ or Intel® Connectivity Performance Suite software, Wi-Fi traffic can be routed over either Wi-Fi link, improving latency and throughput for critical applications.

Worldwide Regulatory Support

Intel® Dynamic Regulatory Solution

Enables performance-optimized worldwide regulatory compliance SKU. The Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411 module detects its location and automatically optimizes the Wi-Fi settings to local regulatory requirements, maximizing performance in each geography, simplifying travel experience and global enterprise procurement. Future regulatory changes are easily managed during the product life cycle.
Wireless Functionality in Pre-boot Environment Support for Wi-Fi network and Bluetooth® Low Energy HID connectivity in the platform’s Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) environment during its boot stage. This capability enables use cases like OS recovery over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® Low Energy-based keyboard and mouse connectivity in this pre-boot environment.
