QNAP Systems introduced the QXG-10G2TB network adaptor. It is a PCIe 3.0 x4 expansion card that allows you to add two 10GbE ports to your QNAP networked storage configuration or Windows or Ubuntu computer.
The Lan adapter card is backward compatible with PCIe 2.0 x4 and networking equipment supporting 5Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 1Gbps, and 100Mbps speeds.
The WiFi network adapter card is based on the Marvell AQtion 10GbE AQC113C ethernet controller. The manufacturer notes that the power consumption of the card is half that of previous models of this kind. For maximum speed, CAT 6 cables are recommended.
It is suitable for home and small businesses users, the QXG-10G2TB network expansion card serves as a simple way for QNAP NAS or PC/workstation users to obtain high-speed 10GbE environments, providing advantages in numerous usage scenarios such as gaming, multimedia, virtualization, large file transfer, and backup.
There are three mounting brackets included: a full-height bracket, a low profile bracket, and a dedicated bracket for installation in select QNAP NAS models.
