Connectivity You Can Count On
For PCs with PCI Express (PCIe) slots, the NIC-9201CT Desktop RJ45 NIC Card offers the newest technology for maximizing system performance and increasing end-user productivity. Specifically, the Intel Gigabit CT Desktop RJ45 NIC Card uses auto-negotiation to ensure the adapter 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 rj45 nic card 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.

Enhancing Desktop Performance

Fast servers and server connections are important for high network performance. However, server speed cannot overcome the drag of slow desktop performance. When a desktop PC initi- ates a transaction with the network server, the server quickly performs its portion of the transaction, but must wait for the desktop PC to complete its part of the transaction. The slower the PC, the longer the server must wait for transaction comple- tion before moving to the next transaction. With PCI Express Gigabit performance to the desktop, transactions on the PC side complete significantly faster, allowing the network to service more transactions faster.

PCI Express Makes GigabitEthernet Even Faster
PCI Express is the third-generation I/O standard with per- formance that supercedes the previous PCI and PCI-X slot standards. The key to PCIe performance is its higher dedicated I/O bandwidth. Unlike the PCI bus, which shares its I/O resources with all devices on the bus, PCIe dedicates its I/O to a single device. The NIC-9201CT Desktop Adapter allows you to take advantage of this dedicated I/O by combining Gigabit Ethernet with PCI Express to provide high-performance network connec- tivity for desktops with PCI Express slots. Make the Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter your choice for applications utilizing rich media content such as video streaming, web applications,music, and gaming.

Quick and Easy Installation

The NIC-9201CT Desktop RJ45 NIC Card is supported by Intel PROSet Utility for Microsoft Device Manager and Intel PRO intelligent install. Intel PROSet simplifies adapter installation and gives you point-and-click power for configuring and managing all of your Intel Network Connections.
