The super-low latency and in-game advantage that AQtion Multi-Gigabit
NICs deliver make them the perfect holiday surprise for any hardware
enthusiast. The performance PC user – whether a gamer, video editing
enthusiast, designer, engineer or just a tried and true geek – wants the
ability to move huge volumes of digital life data seamlessly and
quickly. In a home or office, that seamless capability requires a 5G or
even a 10G NIC card.
Kamal Dalmia, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales, said:
“Typically, gamers and performance PC enthusiasts are on the leading
edge of technology trends. Given the substantial uptick in interest we
have seen for Multi-Gig PC Access solutions in the past year we thought
it would be great to kick off the holiday season with a special
promotion for those users. Not only do they get outstanding Multi-Gig
Ethernet performance, but they get bragging rights over their pals who
are still using outdated, 17-year-old single gigabit technology.”
The AQtion AQN-108 NIC supports 5G and 2.5G Ethernet speeds over
standard Cat 5e and Cat 6 copper cables. Compliant to IEEE 802.3bz
standard, these adapters are also backward-compatible with legacy

supporting 10GBASE-T Ethernet in compliance with the IEEE 802.3an
standard. By supporting PCI Express x4 and x1 versions with a single
RJ45 port, these new Aquantia NICs can be used to easily upgrade
existing PCs and new models to fully utilize the bandwidth capabilities
of modern CPUs and GPUs.
