Compaq has released two network interface cards (NICs), based on an agreement with chip giant Intel. Both companies have the avowed aim of reducing the complexity of networks and developing industry standards, said Compaq.
The two Compaq NICs are driver compatible with Intel cards.
The Netelligent 10/100 TX PCI Intel UTP controller and the 10T PCI Intel UTP Controller include bus mastering and "self-tuning" for performance and also include network fault tolerance functions.
The 10/100TX is also auto-negotiating, allowing for different Ethernet environments, including Fast Ethernet. The product comes in at #37, when bought in packs of 80.
Compaq added that it had chosen Intel silicon and base drivers as the recommended choice for its build-to-order and configure-to-order programmes.
The company said it plans to increase product development with Intel over the next few months and will introduce PCI Hot Plug and Gigabit Ethernet technologies, followed by other announcements until the end of the year.
