Product Info

Lead-Free Gigabit Performance to the Desktop

Now you can maximize system performance and increase end-user productivity for mainstream PCs with the new Intel® PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter. Today’s desktops are weighed down with high-bandwidth applications including voice, data, streaming video, video conferencing, and long-distance storage area networks. The environmentally friendly Intel PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter’s Gigabit bandwidth makes quick work of these network applications with power to spare.

The Intelligent Way to Connect

Built on Intel lead-free technology, the Intel PRO/ 1000 GT Desktop Adapter is the environmentally friendly way to bring Gigabit performance to your desktop at no extra cost . The GT Desktop Adapter contains no lead and conforms to the European Union’s Restrictions on the use of Hazardous Substances and Japan’s White Goods Recycling Act.

  • Simplify installation and maintenance with Intel® SingleDriver™ technology: Intel offers a single driver across all Intel PRO/1000 Desktop and Server Adapters making it easier to administer and upgrade to the latest generation of Intel adapters, simplifying network manage- ment and reducing maintenance costs.
  • High-performing, auto-negotiating 10/100/ 1000 connection: Systems that are currently running at 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps can be upgraded with the Intel PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter now, whether Gigabit switching is currently available or not. By integrating an Intel® PRO Gigabit Network Connection now , information technology (IT) managers will save time, money and downtime when the network is upgraded later because the Intel PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter will automatically detect and run at the higher speed when it becomes available
