Maximum wireless signal rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual wireless data throughput and wireless coverage, and the number of connected devices are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of network conditions, AP limitations, and environmental factors, including building materials, obstacles, volume and density of traffic, and AP location.Several new features are introduced in the Bluetooth Core Specification 5.0 and 5.2 Releases, including 2× faster speed and 4× broader coverage compared with Bluetooth 4.2.Use of WPA3 requires APs to also support the corresponding feature.Data is based on Intel simulation data of 802.11ax with and without OFDMA using 9 clients. The average latency without OFDM is 36ms, with OFDMA average latency is reduced to 7.6ms. Latency improvement requires that the AP and all clients support OFDMA.Use of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), and features including OFDMA, MU-MIMO, HE160, and 1024-QAM require APs to also support the corresponding features.

This is a 2-in-1 card meaning it is CAPABLE of both WiFi and Bluetooth. The PCI-E portion of the card is for Wifi. It's known that if you buy a 2-in-1 card, you should be expecting to use a USB 2.0 motherboard header to use the Bluetooth portion of the card. If you don't have enough 2.0 headers, look into buying a USB 2.0 Header expansion hub.
Secondly, this runs on the Intel AX200 wireless chipset which is WiFi 6 (802.11ax) capable. So when the description says AX3000, it's referring to the combined POTENTIAL MAXIMUM DOWNLOAD speeds of the 2.4 GHz (2402 Mbps) and 5.0 GHz bands (574 Mbps). So if you need drivers for this card, you can grab them directly from Intel's website.
Third, if your router is not capable of WiFi 6 speeds, you will not reach WiFi 6 speeds. Check your model number to see what you're getting. The same thing applies to MU-MIMO and WPA3 Encryption. If your router does not support those two, your card will not use them. It will instead default to S-MIMO, WPA2 (or whatever is available) and WiFi 5 (or whatever your router is capable of).
Now that I've cleared some misconceptions let's move to the features then pros and cons.
- WiFi 6 (802.11ax) capable card / Intel AX200 chipset
- Bluetooth 5.0 (USB 2.0 cable included)
- WiFi (PCI-E interface) and Bluetooth (USB 2.0 Header) [2-in-1 card]
- MU-MIMO (multiple user- multiple input mutiple output) capable, in pigs latin it should give lower latency
- 2x2 Antenna
- WPA3 Encryption
- Low profile bracket included
- WiFi 6 and Bluetooth in 1 card
- reliable latency
- Large Antennas (I'll explain why below)
The ability to have both WiFi and Bluetooth in one card without having to sacrifice a USB port (not USB header) is great since I can use a PCI-E slot. I've had reliable speeds and latency (ignoring ISP interruptions). The card is barely noticeable inside my build since it's relatively small and sits under my GPU.
Although, because the card sits under my GPU the antennas do stick up bumping into my GPU cables. I have to move the antennas slightly to the sides as a result. The positioning of the antennas don't affect performance but aesthetically it sucks.
The TP Link Archer TX50E is a good WiFi and Bluetooth card if you're looking for a 2-in-1.
Everything was pretty straight forward except that I couldn't get bluetooth functionality after driver installation. I tried multiple drivers but each time the machine was rebooted, there were no installed bluetooth devices to be found. After much aggravation, it occurred to me that perhaps the USB header on my motherboard wasn't providing enough juice to power the bluetooth. Following that train of thought, I went ahead and purchased a male USB header to dual male USB adapter. I plugged the bluetooth power cord into the adapter, and then ran the adapter cord out the back of the computer and plugged both USB plugs into the back of my motherboard. Bluetooth works great now!
Top reviews from other countries
I bought this card solely for the Wifi ability but thought the Bluetooth would be neat to have but never use. To my amazement the card came with a USB connector cable to plug into the MB. At first I didn’t realize this was related to the Bluetooth so I was absolutely irritated. After a brief stint of research I learned that only the Bluetooth needs the USB connection so I breathed a sigh of relief. Who has a free USB slot on the MB?? Definitely not me. Otherwise, signal and such seems to be fine... got a ping of 6ms on a different floor then the router so can’t say I’m unhappy with that!
I can’t download any drivers for it because I need the card to wirelessly connect to the internet to get the drivers. Other reviews say it just worked so I’m assuming it’s faulty or something.
EDIT: I downloaded the driver from the TP site, it's the same as the Archer apparently, onto a USB driver, installed it on the PC when I restarted the card was working.
