The Intel Ethernet Network Adapter I226-T1 is ideally suited for personal computers and workstations used for enterprise, gaming, and home networks. These systems require more bandwidth than ever before. This ultra-compact, easy-to-integrate PCIe 3.1 x1 adapter, is a cost-effective networking solution for speeds up to 2.5GbE. The I226-T1 is also designed with a ventilated bracket, for increased efficiency and reduced power consumption. Packed with performance optimization capabilities, the I226-T1 includes advanced interrupt-handling features to reduce CPU overhead. Combining interrupt-handling features with intelligent filtering, ordering, and directing packets to specific queues and cores, enables load-balancing network traffic flows to improve throughput in multi-core platforms. Based on the Intel Ethernet Controller I226-LM, this versatile networking solution supports 2.5 Gbps, 1 Gbps, 100 Mbps and 10 Mbps network speeds without the need to overhaul existing cabling infrastructure. Simplifying technology transitions with auto-negotiation between port speeds provides maximum flexibility.
