This card is a Multi-Gigabit network adapter that’s runs on a high speed PCIe x4 host bus interface.
This card hosts the Tehuti’s new 3rd generation TN4010 controller, and optimized 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC designed for low-power, low-cost, single-port connectivity required by Application Servers and Workstations.
The TN4010 MAC is paired with Marvell Alaska 88X3310P transceiver, a low-power, high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet PHY, to enable five-speed connectivity (10GBase-T, 5GBase-T 2.5GBase-T 1000Base-T, and 100Base-TX) over low-cost standard CAT-6a Ethernet cabling, up to 100m (Cat-5e and CAT-6 are supported compliant to Link Segment specifications).
This combination creates a new gateway to cost-conscious consumer applications, as well as to intensive data environments.
