To make it easier for desktop users to experience the latest Wi-Fi 6 wireless networks, Asus has launched a PCE-AX3000 wireless card. Essentially, it’s also a m.2-2230 Wi-Fi 6 wireless card from a laptop (supports 80/160 MHz channels, 2.4 GHz / 5GHz dual-band wireless). By transferring from the PCIe 3.0 x1 port, the PCE-AX3000 delivers a 2.4 Gbps wireless data transfer rate based on 160 MHz bandwidth.

Functionally, the PCE-AX3000 supports multi-user-multi-input multi-output (MU-MIMO), orthogonal multiplexing (OFDMA), WPA3 secure encryption, and Bluetooth 5.0.
With two large antennas, the PCE-AX3000 dual-band Wi-Fi 6 wireless card ensures signal strength and fast connectivity in all situations, and is compatible with modern desktops such as Windows 10 64-bit and Linux.
