The 2-Port Presto 10 GB Ethernet PCI Express Adapter Card from Sonnet offers a powerful and simple way to add 10GbE connectivity to your Mac Pro or Windows PC. This high-speed wired networking standard offers 10 times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet (1GbE), the common wired network connection included with most computers today.

The 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) is useful to meet the increasing demands for greater data transfer speeds and more bandwidth over shared networks. Furthermore, with specialized applications such as HD video editing using high-performance shared storage systems, the use of 10GbE has increased.

This adapter card 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. With its dual ports, the card supports transparent failover to keep your computer connected in case a single cable is disconnected or one of the ports fails. When used with a Mac computer, it even supports link aggregation.

Provides 10GbE Connectivity to Mac Pro and Windows PCs
Provides a simple and powerful solution to add high-performance 10GbE connectivity to your computer with PCIe slots
Flexibility of Short-Range or Long-Range SFP+ Transceivers
