    Wi-Fi antenna from Maximus VIII Hero to X Hero

    Hey guys,
    so I just got my new Maximus X Hero (AC), but I found out that the antenna, although it looks pretty, is kinda bad, since it doesn't have a magnet and is not that stable, so it's always flopping around my desk. The one which came with my Maximus VIII Hero was much better, you could twist it to unfold to 90 degrees and it had a magnet so I could stick it to side of my case.
    Question is, can I use this old antenna for the new X Hero? I am not sure if it supports the MU-MIMO or not.

    PS. Yes, I use Wifi, my gf drove me out of the living room to a room with no ethernet cable.

    Yes it will work. It's an antenna, there's nothing in it but an antenna.

    Yes, but for example the polarization might be different. If I remember correctly MIMO uses both horizontal and vertical polarization, so I wanted to know if for MU-MIMO it is different. But my bet is that they will be the same anyway.. Thanks.
