Sonnet Gigabit adapters

Sonnet has released three new Gigabit networking products for both older and new Macs: Presto Gigabit Pro PCI network adapter card, the Presto Gigabit PCIe Pro PCI Express network adapter card, and the Presto Gigabit Ethernet Pro ExpressCard/34 network adapter card. These Sonnet Gigabit Ethernet cards expand or add Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in any compatible computer, and offer enhanced performance through support for link aggregation with onboard Ethernet ports, and jumbo packet data transfers. Sonnet says the Presto Gigabit Pro network adapter cards deliver enhanced networking support as well as offer gigabit speeds over common CAT-5 cabling; they also support 1000/100/10BaseT auto-negotiation and full/half duplex communication.

The Presto Gigabit Pro (GE1000LA) works with the Power Macintosh G3 All-in-one, Blue & White (Desktop, Minitower, Server), Power Mac G4 (all models except Cube), Power Mac G5 (with PCI or PCI-X slots ONLY), Xserve G4. It requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, is available now, and costs $100.

The Presto Gigabit PCIe Pro (GE1000LA-E) works with any Mac Pro, Power Mac G5s with PCI Express slots, Xserve (with PCI Express slots) and requires Mac OS X 10.5.2 or later. It is available now for $100.

Finally, the Presto Gigabit Ethernet Pro ExpressCard/34 (GE1000LA-E34) works with any MacBook Pro and requires Mac OS X 10.5.2 or later. It is available now for $80.
