This device seems to have been or will be sold w/ some Alienware

CTO machines @ Dell in Europe and other non-US regions .

The full tag line w/ an Alienware order is Killer NIC 1420

802.11n/ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 (SAF).

There is scant mention of this card anywhere on the net, but..

(ak14w7 / ak14w7x [x64] named files)
  • probable half-sized Mini Card form factor, other options for the 2013
Alienware models look to be mPCIe based, M.2/NGFF expansion seems
to be absent (though present in the newest models using the AC1525)
  • reference on a few far-east trading sites as the QCWB342
(auction.co.kr, taobao) - Lite-On manufacture
... indicate this card was most likely the QCWB342
(WB342 reference design, QCA9862 based).

However, a M.2/NGFF reference design for the QCA9862 does also exist

(NFA342) and also seems to be tersely labeled as a Killer Wireless 1420.
It doesn't appear to have passed through the FCC.
It's visible here @ cart100.com and taobao (both by the same seller).

The card is silkscreened with QUALCOMM ATHEROS,

(QCABNFA1420A + Y5375 or NFA342 + 250-02460-030).

Both cards (.. and likely any other QCA988x/986x devices using 168c:003c PCI ID)

will identify as a Killer AC 1420 from within Windows using QCA's Killer driver.

It's possible both WB342 / NFA342 reference design cards were sold

as the Killer Wireless 1420, but it's not known with certainty.
