Is this chipset is supported out of the box on latest Fedora?

I had some issues with rtl8192ce(latency,disconnects) and I am thinking to buy a new wireless adapter with 8811au chipset.

Feedback :

I've bought an adapter with rtl8812 chipset. Although it doesn't work out of the box, compiling the firmware is really easy following this blog post http://dustymabe.com/2016/01/24/802-1... .

Overall performance is also very good.

EDIT: I found newer version of the driver at https://github.com/zebulon2/rtl8812au
The only drawback is that the driver needs to be removed/installed after every kernel update.

If have an rtl8192ce and never had any problems on Fedora until I became affected by the recent kernel bug in the 4.9.x kernels. My current solution is to boot a 4.8.x kernel until the problem is solved upstream - or I may compile my own kernel module from here.

In case you don't want to wait or give the alternative driver a try, I would recommend you to buy an Intel-based WiFI adapter. They are generally much better supported. (No closed or proprietary driver code).
