PCIe 10 GbE Ethernet Card Single Port w/ Full & Low Profile Brackets (TPE-10GBEPCIE)

PCIe 10 GbE Ethernet Card Single Port w/ Full & Low Profile Brackets (TPE-10GBEPCIE)
Upgrade your NAS, mini server, or PC with a single-port, 5-speed 10GBASE-T network expansion card. It'll accommodate all your high-speed data transfer needs and satisfy any bandwidth-hungry applications. The 10 GbE network expansion card delivers speeds of up to 10 Gbps - 10x faster than standard Gigabit Ethernet - to greatly boost data transfer performance.

  • Great for those with high bandwidth needs: From video production to file sharing

  • PCIe 3.0 x4 interface for maximum transfer speeds

  • Support for most popular and libre (free) distributions

  • Not dependent on NDISWrapper or other OS-loaded binary blobs / proprietary drivers

  • Passive heat sink (fanless): Silent and efficient!

  • Works great with traditional ethernet networks: 5-speed 10GBASE-T RJ45 connector

  • Current LAN cables can already support speeds > 1Gbps: CAT 5e can support up to 5G

  • Looking for 10Gbps? Pick up some CAT 6, 6A, or CAT 7 Cable

  • Curious how our 10 GbE card compares to other products? Check out this real world speed test.

  • First time installing a PCIe card? Check out the PCIe card install demo, penguin style
