SMC's Offers 10G Network Adapter at $799

SMC Network announced a new line of 10G network adapters --- including a standards-compliant 10GBASE-T server adapter: the SMC10GPCIe-10BT with an MSRP of $1299. Also available is a 10Gigabit optical server adapter: the SMC10GPCIe-XFP, at and MSRP of $799.

"Price has been a barrier to widespread 10-gigabit Ethernet adoption," said SMC Network's Director of Product Marketing, Iain Kenney. "SMC's new 10G network adapters are designed around the concept of stateless offload, or leveraging the host CPU more efficiently to get the job done, which allows for a more attractive price/performance ratio."
