There are still quite a few users using 100M routers, but most desktops or laptops have already used gigabit Ethernet ports. But even so, regardless of the read and write speeds of most HDD and SSD have exceeded 300MB/S, and NVMe SSDs have already reached 1000MB/S.
Therefore, for many users, still using the onboard Gigabit Ethernet port can no longer meet the transmission requirements, especially the home intranet data transmission task may be heavier. It stands to reason that the onboard 10-Gigabit network adapter should have been promoted by now, but for various reasons, the mainstream still uses the relatively low-cost gigabit network port. At present, the price of the onboard 10-Gigabit network adapter is about $100. Obviously, the price of this solution is still relatively high for most consumer users.
Therefore, at the current stage, Juplink introduced a 2.5Gbps network adapter to increase the transmission speed for transition. The maximum speed of 2.5Gbps network adapter with 2.5G network port router can reach 280MB/S. Although it still does not reach the upper limit of SSD transmission, it has been doubled.
At present, most homes and Internet cafes use gigabit networks or lower, which can no longer satisfy people's network use for large file downloads, storage, and large-scale web games. However, replacing the 10 Gigabit network not only causes a serious waste of resources, but also a huge investment in cost. Therefore, the 2.5G speed network adapter is the most ideal solution for a long time in the future.
What are the advantages of 2.5G network adapter over Gigabit network?
No need to replace the network, the 2.5G network adapter is also suitable for the current Gigabit network wiring. The speed is directly increased by 2.5 times, which is the most compromised solution for Gigabit and 10 Gigabit networks. Support PCIe interface, backward compatible with 10/100/1000/2500Mbps rate mode. Suitable for online games, home storage, industrial computers, embedded computers, etc.
NP-2500 is a PCIe single-port 2.5G Ethernet network adapter developed by Juplink based on the Realtek master control solution. The adapter supports PXE diskless startup and has a remote wake-up function. In the actual test, the TCP bandwidth can reach 2.37G , UDP bandwidth can reach 2.39G. Not only is it suitable for high-quality network requirements such as online e-sports games, but also can be widely used in home storage, industrial computers, embedded computers, single-board computers, digital multimedia and other applications. It is the best choice for the transition between Gigabit network and 10 Gigabit network.
