Sonnet SON-G10E2XE3 (SONG10E2XE3, SON/G10E2XE3, son-g10e2xe3) Presto 10G Base-T Ethernet 2 Port PCIe Card
Presto 10GbE 10GBase-T Dual-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express 3.0 Card
Ultra-Fast 10 Gb/s Network Connection
With creative prosâ€™ increasing demand for greater data transfer speeds and more bandwidth over shared networks, itâ€™s no wonder that 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) use has skyrocketedâ€”this high-speed wired networking standard offers ten times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet, the common wired network connection included with most computers today. To get your computer up to speed, youâ€™ll have to adaptâ€”Sonnetâ€™s Prestoâ„¢ 10GbE 10GBase-T PCIe 3.0 card is a powerfully simple and cost-effective way to add dual-port copper 10GbE connectivity to your Mac Pro® tower or Windows® PC
Simple Set-Up. High-Performance Computing.
The Presto 10GbE 10GBase-T card enables you to connect your computer to high-speed infrastructure and storage without stepping down in speed. Setup is simpleâ€”after installing the low-profile card into an available x4 or larger PCIe slot in your computer, just download and install a driver, connect to the switch or deviceâ€™s 10GbE ports via inexpensive CAT-6 or CAT-6A copper cabling at distances up to 55 or 100 meters, respectively, and then configure the card through the OS X® Network control panel or Windows Device Manager. This Sonnet solution is perfect for high-performance computing where low latency, high bandwidth, and low CPU overhead are required.
Its increased throughput performance and low host-CPU utilization are achieved through functions such as flow control support, 64-bit address support for systems using more than 4GB of physical memory; and stateless offloads such as TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offloading, enabling your computer to perform better while large files transfers or high I/O operations take place. Wake-on-LAN support enables remotely waking your computer when you need it, and not wasting energy when you donâ€™t. With its dual ports, this Sonnet adapter supports transparent failover to keep your computer connected in case a single cable is disconnected or one of the ports fails, and it also supports link aggregation for increased throughput!
Optimized for Thunderbolt
Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe slot? Presto 10GbE 10GBase-T is ideal for use in one of Sonnet's Echo Express or xMac Thunderbolt-to-PCIe card expansion systemsâ€”the combo enables you to add ultra-fast 10GbE network connections to any Mac® or Windows PC with a Thunderbolt 2 port.
