The 1-Port Presto 10 GbE Ethernet PCIe Adapter Card from Sonnet offers a powerful and simple way to add 10 GbE connectivity to your Mac Pro or Windows PCs. With increasing demands for greater data transfer speeds and more bandwidth over shared networks and with specialized applications such as HD video editing using high-performance shared storage systems, 10 GbE Ethernet use has increased. This high-speed wired networking standard offers 10 times the performance of 1 GbE Ethernet, the common wired network connection included with most computers today.
The adapter card enables you to connect your computer to high-speed infrastructure and storage without reducing speed. You need to install this low-profile card into an available x8 or x16 PCIe slot in your computer, install a driver, connect to the switch or 10 GbE port via an LC fiber optic or copper cable (sold separately) and then configure the card through the OS X network control panel or Windows Device Manager. This solution is perfect for high-performance computing where low latency, high bandwidth and low CPU overhead are required. It provides increased throughput performance and low host-CPU utilization with stateless offloads, allowing your computer to perform better while large files transfers or high I/O operations take place.
