【Newsletter#138】Double Your Performance with the AS-U2.5G2

Postby Carrie.Y@AST » Tue Feb 23, 2021 10:16 am

The Ethernet port is one of many features that have been on the chopping block for most modern laptops. Its bulky design gets in the way of thinner and lighter laptop designs and manufacturers have sacrificed the Ethernet port in light of this. This means that most laptops require use of the Wi-Fi adapter inside to access the Internet and have USB ports in the space that would have been occupied by Ethernet. For those with small form factor desktop PCs, there may not be enough PCI Express connectors to support installation of a faster network card. For those who need speed, wired networking remains superior to wireless as wireless has lower speeds and greater latency. For most tasks, wireless is sufficient, but gaming and work often benefit from Ethernet’s superior latency and performance. ASUSTOR’s recently-launched AS-U2.5G2 2.5-Gigabit USB network adapter absolutely demolishes Wi-Fi in both speed and latency. Connect the AS-U2.5G2 to a USB Type-C or Type-A port of your laptop or small form factor PC and connect it to a compatible 2.5-Gigabit-compatible network and watch as transfers go faster than ever before. The AS-U2.5G2 improves on the previous generation AS-U2.5G by reducing the weight, improving aesthetics and introducing a more efficient heat dissipation mechanism. Double the performance of Gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi for unmatched performance.

The new AS-U2.5G2 network adapter uses Realtek's RTL8156B, which is an enhanced version of the RTL8156 and not only improves performance, but also saves power. The new aluminum alloy exterior allows for better heat dissipation, while the chipset consumes 66% less power than the RTL8156 and does not require additional power. The AS-U2.5G2 transmits data at speeds of up to 2.5Gbps, but is also compatible with Gigabit and 100-Megabit devices, ensuring that only one adapter is ever needed. The AS-U2.5G2 provides a Type-A adapter inside the box for easy compatbility across almost any USB 3 device and supports laptops, desktops and ASUSTOR NAS devices, combined with its speed and efficiency bring an unmatched experience.
