Is there a low power mini-PC with dual on board Nic\’s?
My target was was a mini-PC with low power consumption and dual on board Intel NIC\’s, like a NUC, but none of the usual suspects offered this. I found a few specialty embedded-type mini PC makers, but their products were either prohibitively expensive or they didn\’t give me a good vibe. So I decided to try to build my own on the (relative) cheap.
How many GbE ports does a dual-port NIC have?
Perhaps the key functionality for this card is seen here with two 2.5GbE RJ45 ports. The unit is still small enough that one can utilize the low profile bracket for this dual-port NIC. Overall, this is not the most complex solution. Still, it is inexpensive and is a way to get dual 2.5GbE ports into virtually any system.
How many Gigabit NICs does SYBA have?
As we alluded to during our Syba 2.5 Gigabit NIC Review, we also purchased the 2-port model to review. The Syba Dual 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter is a PCIe Gen2 x1 NIC which means it can be deployed in just about any server. This Ethernet adapter has two Realtek NICs that each can provide a 2.5GbE connection over existing copper wire.
How many NICs are in a Realtek Ethernet adapter?
This Ethernet adapter has two Realtek NICs that each can provide a 2.5GbE connection over existing copper wire. For many deployments, this is an easy way to get more than twice the performance of 1GbE at a relatively low cost.
