QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking and storage solution innovator, today launched the QXG-2G1T-I225 PCIe network card. Providing single-port 2.5GBASE-T connectivity that supports 2.5G, 1G, 100 Mbps and 10 Mbps network speeds, the QXG-2G1T-I225 is a PCIe 2.0 x1 card that can be installed in a QNAP NAS or a Windows /Linux PC. Existing CAT 5e cables can be used with the QXG-2G1T-I225 to provide an immediate upgrade to 2.5 GbE networking. The QXG-2G1T-I225 also supports Windows Server 2019 and provides efficient server management with support for Intel Teaming (Link aggregation), PXE, Intel AMT, Wake on LAN, and VLAN.

 

"The QXG-2G1T-I225 represents QNAP's commitment to providing affordable 2.5 GbE solutions. By using existing CAT 5e cables, users can immediately benefit from 2.5 GbE by pairing their QXG-2G1T-I225 with a 2.5 GbE switch and NAS." said Stanley Huang, Product Manager of QNAP, adding "2.5 GbE provides immediate benefits to both home and business users across a wide range of applications - including gaming, multimedia, virtualization, backup, and general everyday usage. QNAP's 2.5 GbE solutions represent the easiest and most wallet-friendly way to adopt high-speed networking."

These can be handy, thought I actually got the 10Gbe variant for my QNAP NAS a little while ago, that small sucker cost me like £300. I have not even used it yet, not to its full potential. Good to see they are releasing a more affordable solution though, would have preferred if it had 2x 2.5Gbe ports that could be used in Link Aggregation.

£3000

Agree, finally something useful for those wasted 1x PCI-e slots

 

Yeah, this is what I was thinking but forgot to add as a comment, definitely can help breath a little new life in to some older servers and gaming PC's, like those people still running Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge on PCIe Gen 2.
