Depends on your case, if there is minimal airflow around your expansion cards, you should get the heatsink version.

WiFi 6e will be anew standard with more spectrum recently approved by the fcc. This will be back compatible with wifi6 but 6e hardware will be needed to utilize new spectrum.

I've been looking into getting one of these as my Bluetooth USB adapter doesn't always want to turn on when waking up my PC which forces me to unplug and plug it back in every time. Can anyone vouch for its bluetooth performance? I don't particularly need the range to be far-reaching.

You can already get wifi 6e PCI-e adapters for $30-$40. Lots of networking companies announced their wifi 6e routers at CES this past week.

Considering most people will only upgrade their wifi adapter after several years, might as well spend another $10-$20 to future proof your setup.

Pay 50% more to "future proof"? Is it really worth it?
Not sure what would see the increased benefits, can you list them?

Wifi 6 and wifi 6e are identical except that wifi 6e uses a new wireless frequency (6 GHz). Wifi 6 devices operate on an extremely crowded frequency (5 GHz), so wifi 6e should see better performance.

And true, it's 50%, but it's also only $10. Wifi 4 released in 2009 and wifi 5 released in 2014, so let's assume wifi 7 will release five years from now. Are you willing to spend $10 more for potentially better wifi performance for the next five years?

My guess is within a few months, all new wifi adapters will support wifi 6e as the cost isn't much higher than wifi 6 adapters. Unless you need one right away and absolute lowest cost is the highest priority, I would either buy a wifi 6e adapter or wait until they drop in price by $10.

This is a dumb take, because youre not gonna be buying a 6e router for a while since they cost 600 dollars and by the time that you do either the adapters will be cheaper or a new spec will have come out

Not to mention 6e is identical to 6 unless there is a alot of devices in your area.

I live in a house not an apartment so I will see 0 performance increase. I also put low requirement devices like printers on 2.4ghz.

But really its $10 I dont blame anyone who errs on the side of 6e just incase theres interferance. Id say just get the better performance right now because wifi 6 in general is amazing enough to upgrade asap. Also you can get a plain wifi 6 router for $50 so getting into the latest and greatest is real cheap without waiting for 6e to come down in price.

Not really. Consider the track record of the WIFI vendors, the 6E routers will not only very expensive but also very buggy. Even the promised speed is very questionable. I have two laptopd that has Intel AX200 board and the speed is worse than my AC only smartphones. The 6GHz band's range is even shorter than 5GHz band which in turn is shorter than 2.4GHz under same RF power. People will be better off buy the performance when they need it, not future proof.

It's actually far more than 50% when you figure in everything else (i.e. router) needed to take advantage of 6e. And it most likely will not even make a difference for most people. If you can get one for the same price why not otherwise WiFi 6 is fine.

these also go into ITX/SFF/HTPCs so yes every little bit matters
For those with m.2 wifi enabled ITX cases I would suggest buying intel wifi kit instead. This one routes BT chip through usb header and has a short antenna cable which may not reach to your m.2 slot. Intel wifi kit can also be found for 20 dollars occasionally. This one will also solve your wifi/BT problem and decent price tho so not a bad deal, but not perfect.

Why is there a heatsink version?

Do these actually run that hot?

I ordered an AX210 kit for my desktop from China. My MB has an M2 slot.

For those that want a PCIE AX210 version, look here [ebay.com]. Its $30.
It really depends on your PC build. If your form factor is pretty cramped, I would get the one with the heatsink. If you have adequate ventilation, it won't matter. From experience though, I've had better experience with wifi cards with a heat sink, less drops on my end.
