10GBase-T PCIe Network Adapter with backward compatibility of 5/2.5/1G and 100Mbps ; RJ45 port and built-in QoS
"Build quality of the ASUS XG-C100C is top notch. We have at least an 8-layer PCB with an anodized aluminum heat sink to pull any heat away from the card. This also adds to the aesthetic and follows the design of their wireless products, namely the PCE-AC68 and PCE-AC88 I use in testing.
Performance for me is superb; you can look back at any 10Gbe NAS review I have done over the last few months and note the performance that has come from using this adapter. The chart in this review serves mainly as a note that the card does indeed reach full 10Gbe throughput without issue." - TweakTown.com

"Standard 1Gbps networking is so last decade which makes me welcome an addition to the market such as the ASUS XG-C100C that I’ve tested today. While Gigabit Ethernet is plenty for internet connections, local traffic is easily bottlenecked by it and that is a thing you can fix by installing this card.
The overall design follows other ASUS network device such as the wireless network cards. The red PCB and large heatsink give the card a look that will match most gaming systems. A heatsink on a network card might seem overkill, but it will be placed in high-end systems. High-end systems feature a lot of hardware that generates a lot of heat, such as graphics cards. When the network card is being placed between such heat sources, it needs something to cope with it. Overall, a great design.
ASUS’ XG-C100C adds what has been missing in your system for years, a proper network connection that can match the performance from the rest of your system." - eTeknix.com
