PCI Express is the next revolution in I/O interconnect standards that will deliver the bandwidth and features required by PCs, consumer electronics and communications devices. The architecture is a cost-effective, low-pin count, and point-to-point technologies offering maximum bandwidth, reducing cost and design complexity and enabling smaller form factors. This card is the best solution for Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express and the interface has a potential transfer rates of 2.5 Gbps using a single-lane (or x1) PCI Express link.
This card is a 2-Port Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Card, which is specifically designed to plug into a desktop equipped with an available x1, x4, x8 or x16 PCI Express slot. It supports high performance dual channel networking and full duplex communication to achieve up to 2000 Mbps and fast transfer rates, yet is compatible with existing Ethernet. It comes with a comprehensive of software drives for all desktop operating systems, including Microsoft Windows and Linux.
