Gigabit network cards

Sonnet Technologies has introduced two new network cards the Presto Gigabit PCIe Server and the Presto Gigabit PCI-X Sever. The new network cards add two gigabit ethernet ports to any compatible computer, and offer enhanced network performance through support for jumbo packet transfers. They also improve reliability with transparent failover protection in case a cable gets disconnected. Presto Gigabit PCIe Server features a PCI Express x4 host bus interface for maximum performance in recent computers, while Presto PCI-X Server features a 64-bit, 133MHz PCI-X host bust interface for compatibility with older computers. Both cards allow gigabit transfers over common CAT-5 cabling. The cards are both available for $200 and are compatible with Mac OS X and Windows XP/Vista.
