I bought a wifi 6E router and want to install the new Intel AX210 wifi card to get access to the Wifi 6Ghz band but the VIII Hero is only Wifi 6 AX200.
Can i swap the internal wifi card on the board or do i have to use a pcie card or a m.2 slot?

Actually, I think you can remove the covering and replace the wifi chip fairly easily. If you look at the illustration you see the treads on the rear of the wifi? I think once you remove that screw there is a vertically mounted M2 type E connector which houses the intel wifi 6 ax200. I haven't seen an x570 mobo yet that doesn't have the wifi chip mounted in a way which cant be replaced.

This is a year old thread.
Hopefully the OP is not still messing with this.
