File sizes aren't getting smaller, especially with all the multimedia files being created today. Thecus Technology has just announced the C10GT 10Gb Ethernet PCI-e adapter to allow users to take advantage of enhanced speeds offered by the 10Gb Ethernet standard.

The C10GT comes equipped with an enterprise-class Tehuti Luxor TN3020-D processor and delivers efficient high-bandwidth access to server and storage applications via its dual cable interface, which features one CX4 port and one SFP+ port – perfect for accommodating both copper and fiber optic cabling.

The C10GT is compatible with various standards including IEEE 802.3ae, IEEE 802.3ak, and IEEE 802.1q and supports Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Linux operating systems. The adapter can be installed in both PCI Express x4 and x8 slots, and can even be used to upgrade some Thecus NAS devices to 10Gb Ethernet capability including the N7700 and N8800 series units.

Hopefully this one won't cost 300 dollars. XD

People aren't going to really adopt this until the cost of switches drops...last I checked it cost a small fortune for a 16 port 10 Gb switch. :P

A month ago 10GbE cards were in the 1K range- I don't know how much these cards cost, but other mfgs have offerings in the 400 range. Though, def, we wont see any wide spread adoption until switches fall. I for one can't wait :D
