Speeds are not additive.
All I'm saying is that they should be consistent in their descriptions.

No but they can be used under different bandwidth so to speak. For example, you can use the 5gz to connect to the internet but you can use the 2.4ghz to transfer files on your network. I have a Windows PC that is connected to my Mac over TB3. The only thing that uses that TB3 connection is the Remote access software not sure I even need to do this but It helps me limit network traffic on the rest of the network. However, I still transfer files over the ethernet between the two computers. Also have the wifi on because some computers on the network are connected via Wifi and I am unable to see them otherwise. So I actually use all three network connects at once.

Guess your right can't use two wifi

Not sure if Air drop is broken in Catalina but it does not seem to work with this card at least not yet. Works fine in Mojave.

I'm ready to pull the trigger on this card but I'm worried about the low profile bracket as it's been hard to find them sold without a full wifi card online (in the US)

Ask @scottkendall if he got one in his box.

Both of them came with a low profile bracket that I threw in a drawer.

I just got mine and no bluetooth. is there a Kext I need to install?

P.S. with a USB BT adapter, handoff is working, watch unlocking works.

There's no kext needed. Have you made a custom USB SSDT that enables the onboard USB 2.0 header that the adapter should connect to ?

I can confirm. Plug n Play and came with a low profile adapter. I'm just going to throw it out... if anyone needs it, more than happy to ship it out to them.
