GE10X2-PCIE4XG301 is Dual 10G/ 5G/ 2.5G/ 1000BASE-T/ 100BASE-TX Ethernet to PCI Express x4 Gen 3 Host Card.
GE10X2-PCIE4XG301 supports 10GBASE-T Ethernet in compliance with the IEEE 802.3an standard, as well as 5 Gbps and 2.5 Gbps Ethernet speeds over standard Cat 5e and Cat 6 copper cables. Compliant to the IEEE 802.3bz standard ratified in September 2016, the GE10X2-PCIE4XG301 is also backwards-compatible with legacy 1000BASE-T Ethernet.
The GE10X2-PCIE4XG301 is dual-chip, dual-port, high-performance PCIe 3.0 Multi-Gig 10GBASE-T/ 5GBASE-T/ 2.5GBASE-T/ 1000BASE-T/ 100BASE-TX Ethernet adapter. It incorporates Aquantia’s AQrate PHY technology to deliver 1 GbE and 2.5 GbE network connectivity speeds over 100 m with zero change required for legacy cabling. Speeds ranging from 5 GbE to 100 M are supported by Cat 5e cabling while 10GbE requires a minimum of Cat6 with Cat 6a running up to 100 m.
GE10X2-PCIE4XG301 is designed with Two key components.
- 12-Lane, 3-Port PCI Express Gen 3 Switch.
- PCI Express to 10G/ 5G/ 2.5G/ 1000BASE-T/ 100BASE-TX Single Chip Host Controller
