For PCs with PCI Express (PCIe) slots, the Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adaptor offers maximum system performance and increased end-user productivity. Specifically, the Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adaptor uses auto-negotiation to ensure the adaptor runs at the highest available network speed (10, 100, or 1000 Mbps), and it maintains full bandwidth capacity with the dedicated bandwidth of a PCI Express input/output (I/O) bus to provide connectivity you can count on. Based on the low-power Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controller, this desktop adaptor offers optimal performance in a low-cost, low-power, compact profile. Teaming support and an array of other advanced features enable customers to utilize this adapter as an entry-level server adapter as well.
