ASUSTOR Launches AS-T10G2 10 Gigabit Ethernet Card

The all-new AS-T10G2 is here, bringing increased efficiency and speeds to the much beloved AS-T10G. The AS-T10G2 uses the AQC-107 controller, which offers increased performance, and lower power requirements. Using the Lockerstor 16R Pro, transfer rates were found to be up to 1127 MB/s when reading and 1124 MB/s when writing. The AS-T10G2 also supports IP, TCP, UDP checksum offload to reduce CPU usage for a more efficient experience.

The AS-T10G2 is equipped with a 10 Gbps 8p8c RJ-45 Ethernet port. The AS-T10G2 supports automatic switching between all major Ethernet speeds and is compatible with four lanes of PCI Express 3.0. Pop it into an ASUSTOR NAS running ADM 4.0 or a PC to upgrade network speeds to 10-Gigabit Ethernet. The AS-T10G2 is compatible with both full-height and half-height computers, making it compatible with almost any device featuring a PCI Express slot, ensuring affordable, yet high speed networking for both homes and businesses.

Yee haw, an overpriced 10Gb card for all our slow-as-frozen molasses 1Gb connections.... yessirreeee, now that's something to get excited about :eek::p:D

yes this was meant as s.A.r.C.a.S.m....in case you haven't figured that out already !

TheLostSwede$119, which is about $30-40 too much.
Compared to what? Serious question. I haven't seen many cheap 10gbps cards...

Considering how the Intel X550-T1 is usually 125$ used and has a way too long PCB to not completely obstruct a graphics card above it, this card might actually be a very much worthy replacement to that lineup! Not to mention the way bigger heatsink...I think I'm OK with this product.

Hopefully that means we'll get their 10Gbps NICs in their cheaper NAS's. They either offer you an intel one with 2.5 gbps or a marvell one with 10 gbps. Ideally having 10gbps in the intel one without raising prices would be great. Shame we still dont see a 4.0x1 interface, which is sufficient for 10Gbps.

Indeed. I remember buying my intel 1000CT a few years ago for about $30, now they are closer to $50

In addition to the links above.

Trendnet $90.

TP-Link goes for the equivalent of $86 here.

As all these cards are based on Aquantia, there shouldn't really be such a huge spread in cost difference.

Unfortunately you can't get the Aquantia cards any more, but they were normally retailing for around $80-90 as well. I got two of them for about $70 each during their black Friday special some years ago and they've been rock solid once they released a firmware that worked with AMD Ryzen...

That's a gigabit nic. The OP is a 10 gigabit nic.

I know, exactly my point. If a 1 gig card is $50 then a 10gig card should be $500. So at that price it's a fair deal.

Where are the affordable NAS's with even 2.5GbE, let alone 10GbE? My new Asus X570 MB has the Intel 2.5GbE port, but I have no devices to take advantage and I upload a lot of photos and 2.5Gb/s would be a nice boost. Even my brand new Synology is still 1GbE.

I have to agree, for a rebranded Aquantia, $120 is a bit on the high side.

Holy shit, please tell me they aren't serious with the heatsink on that thing! There is no way that card doesn't overheat.

Ironically my X470 motherboard comes with the Aquantia ACQ-107 built in. They really were great budget 10G cards, it is sad Marvell bought them up and killed off the cheap cards.

What do you consider "affordable"?
