Product Brief
Intel® Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter
Network Connectivity
Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter
PCI Express* Gigabit Performance to the Desktop
• High-performance, self-configuring 10/100/1000
Mbps connection for PCI Express* slots
• Easy installation, maintenance, and advanced
management capabilities
• Low-cost, low-power, compact design
Connectivity You Can Count On
For PCs with PCI Express (PCIe*) slots, the Intel® Gigabit CT Desk-
top Adapter offers the newest technology for maximizing system
performance and increasing end-user productivity. Specifically,
the Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter uses auto-negotiation to
ensure the adapter runs at the highest available network speed
(10, 100, or 1000 Mbps), and it maintains full bandwidth capacity
with the dedicated bandwidth of a PCI Express input/output
(I/O) bus to provide connectivity you can count on. Based on
the low-power Intel® 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controller, this
desktop adapter offers optimal performance in a low-cost,
low-power, compact profile. Teaming support and an array of
other advanced features enable customers to utilize this adapter
as an entry-level server adapter as well.
Enhancing Desktop Performance
Enhances Network Performance
Fast servers and server connections are important for high
network performance. However, server speed cannot overcome
the drag of slow desktop performance. When a desktop PC initi-
ates a transaction with the network server, the server quickly
performs its portion of the transaction, but must wait for the
desktop PC to complete its part of the transaction. The slower
the PC, the longer the server must wait for transaction comple-
tion before moving to the next transaction. With PCI Express
Gigabit performance to the desktop, transactions on the PC side
complete significantly faster, allowing the network to service
more transactions faster.
PCI Express Makes Gigabit
Ethernet Even Faster
PCI Express is the third-generation I/O standard with per-
formance that supercedes the previous PCI and PCI-X* slot
standards. The key to PCIe performance is its higher dedicated
I/O bandwidth. Unlike the PCI bus, which shares its I/O resources
with all devices on the bus, PCIe dedicates its I/O to a single
device. The Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter allows you to take
advantage of this dedicated I/O by combining Gigabit Ethernet
with PCI Express to provide high-performance network connec-
tivity for desktops with PCI Express slots. Make the Intel Gigabit
CT Desktop Adapter your choice for applications utilizing rich
media content such as video streaming, web applications,
music, and gaming.
Quick and Easy Installation
Like all Intel® Network Adapters, the Intel Gigabit CT Desktop
Adapter is supported by Intel® PROSet Utility for Microsoft*
Device Manager and Intel® PRO intelligent install. Intel PROSet
simplifies adapter installation and gives you point-and-
click power for configuring and managing all of your Intel
Network Connections.
