TAIPEI, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Computex – That steady drum beat you hear, getting gradually louder? It’s not the dragon boat festival. It’s the Multi-Gig revolution hitting the shores of Taiwan. A short year ago, Aquantia took the lead in the Multi-Gig race with its AQtion Network Interface Card (NIC) for PCs. Just like a dragon boat, the race to a complete Multi-Gig ecosystem calls for multiple players to all pull in the same direction. At Computex 2018, Aquantia will showcase a wide array of partner devices based on its wide-range of Multi-Gig PHYs and Controllers for performance enthusiasts, enterprises of all sizes and road warriors.
“Gamers always ride the tidal wave’s edge when it comes to new technology adoption. We saw this with the positive reception Aquantia AQtion Ethernet adapters received at Computex last year,” said LK Bhupathi, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Aquantia Corp. “2018 is the year we wrap a whole Multi-Gig ecosystem around the performance enthusiast with service provider 10G gateways, networked attached storage (NAS), access points, switches and more all based on our Multi-Gig AQrate PHYs and AQtion controllers. We’ve even reached the gamer’s best friend – the developer – with workstation offerings from all the major OEMs and new Multi-Gig on-the-go solutions for notebooks.”
At Computex 2018, Aquantia will showcase a number of Multi-Gig firsts based on AQrate PHYs and AQtion controllers including:
- New 10G NAS solutions from QNAP and Buffalo for lightning-fast data transfers.
- New Multi-Gig switch designs including the Trendnet 8-Port 10G EdgeSmart.
- New Aquantia AQtion USB to Multi-Gig Ethernet controllers with new docking stations and adapters based on those devices.
- Wi-Fi access points from Cisco, Aruba, Netgear and others.
- Gaming motherboards featuring 10G Ethernet from ASRock and more.
