Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Four-port PCI-Express x4 Gigabit Ethernet NIC - Four-port PCI-Express x4 Gigabit Ethernet NIC
Tue, July 12 2005 | 5:09PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Up until now there has been a mixed bag of PCI Express based devices hitting the market... PCI Express audio cards - none, PCI Express videocards - almost none, PCI Express network cards - ditto, PCI Express RAID cards - a handful. A few PCIe peripherals pop up here and there for server applications, but that leaves most of us with motherboards supporting PCI Express x1 or x4 slots with simply nothing to install in them.

LeWiz Communications has a new 4-port Gigabit Ethernet low-profile PCI Express x4 network card for server, or storage systems. With all 4 ports active in a bi-directional mode, the Talon3008 card can transmit and receive up to 8Gbps or 4Gbps in each direction. The board has TCP/IP assist functions to reduce the work load for the system CPUs.

"The 4 ports allow fail-over fault-tolerant capability using quad redundancy or dual redundancy over 2 different networks ensuring the system can always be up and running. For better performance, the 4 GigE ports can also be bonded together to form a single pipe achieving the performance of most 10Gbps HBA cards in the market but at a fraction of the cost."

It supports Windows2000/2003 Server, Solaris10/Express, Linux2.4/2.6, and Redhat or SuSE Enterprise, AMD Opteron and Intel Xeon platforms both in 32 and 64 bit configurations.
