No, its not really workable.

The issue is more than the ability to plug the unit in (slightly different sizes). The issue is the antennas the way 802.11ac works requires waveform shaping to gain the throughput your systems antennas can't offer this as they are designed to support different bands.

Testing has proven there is no benefit swapping it out (in fact it tested out worse throughput) Techctrir - Does it work?

Yes you can and I have done so successfully. It was tough finding the Broadcom BCM4360 to buy. But if you trawl the DHGates and Alibabas you might get lucky as I did.

Here's proof (as best as I can provide) that my early 2013 15" rMPB is connected to my ac Time capsule using 5Ghz ac wireless:

The test linked to above uses a 2013 MBA card in a rMPB. The Air's card only has 2 antennae while the rMPB uses 3. As such I would take their results with a grain of salt.

I can't provide throughput metrics and comparisons however as I lack the setup/inclination to do so. All I can say is that I have seen significant improvement moving files to a file server with gigabit ethernet.

It's an easy and worthwhile upgrade if you can find the card.

Rick it looks like the guy I got mine from has more in 898059236

Note it took a long time to be processed and shipped but he's a pretty good communicator.

I thnk it's pretty expensive for a wireless card but these ac one are in extremely short supply. Which is probably why.

I can confirm this upgrade is completely possible and here's my proof

I don't believe that is was what Steve was asking. He asked if an Airport card from a Late 2013 Retina MBP could be used. Looking at the iFixIt tear down of the Late 2013 model the Airport card does have 3 antenna connectors. Has anyone actually tried replacing the card in an earlier model Retina MacBook Pro with the card from a Late 2013 model?

Michael - Your right the new retina models have three antenna's. But with that said no one has taken a new system apart to swap-out the AirPort board to see if it really works and if the antennas work correctly. We know the dual antenna AirPort board did not offer any improvement. And we also know the full ability of the 802.11ac can't really be tested by most people as its just to powerful for a persons home system as well as what people have for internet connections. Bottom-line here it's a nice checkoff to future proof ones purchase but its still a ways off before one can leverage it. So upgrading ones system doesn't get you enough to be worth the expense. Lastly, these AirPort boards are going to be hard to get for sometime (maybe mid year next year).

Yes, it works. I don’t know if it makes a difference in the networking speed, but it does add the ability to unlock the Macbook with an Apple Watch, and is almost completely seamless aside from the caveats listed below.

The part number to search for is:

BCM94360CSAX

I’ve found them on Amazon, eBay, and other sources.

The two caveats on this:

  1. Any apps that you’ve downloaded from the App Store seem to be tied to the MAC address, and you’ll have to authenticate at launch and/or re-download any apps from there.
  2. If you bring it in for service at the Apple Store, their diagnostic tools seem to think that the Bluetooth is broken and they might replace the card. This happened to me when I had them replace the battery, so I had to get a new replacement card, install it, and re-authenticate the apps as above.

I bought this exact card and it worked straight away in an early 2013 MacBook Pro with no issues
