I am looking for a natively supported wifi card that is capable of handling Airdrop. I would be great if its tested on Mojave and is
PCI Express. Recommendations?

Broadcom 94360CD gives you Handoff, Instant Hotspot and Airdrop. There are others but this is the one I use.
Does this need to be plugged into the pcie 1 slot? Mine is currently covered by my gpu. Do you know if there is a work around for me?

Why would any of these cards be limited to only working in x1 slots? PCI-e should be forward and backwards compatible. I've even jury rigged video cards in to x1 slots and it worked.

Btw, BCM94360CSAX and BCM94360CS2 also work fine.

so far i have recommendations for:
BCM94360CSAX
BCM94360CS2
BCM94360CD

Which one would possibly be future proof i.e. Mojave+ and native compatability for wifi and bluetooth IYO

My research has shown that alot of cards have issues if they're not in pcie 1. I'm welcome to hearing your advice.
