It feels like Gigabit Ethernet has been around for decades, because the uptake on 10GbE connectivity hasn't been as fast as the switch between 100Mbps and 1GbE. There are motherboards with 10GbE connectivity, but they're few and far between... and now QNAP has a solution for that.

QNAP has just unveiled their new QNA series Thunderbolt 3 to 10GbE adapter which lets people with Thunderbolt 3 Type-C connectivity to easily step up to 10GbE. Dan Lin, Product Manager of QNAP explains: "With the handy QNA series adapter, a 10GbE network can be created between your Thunderbolt 3 computer and another 10GbE-capable device without needing a complicate setup. 10GbE networks can facilitate high-speed data transfer and greatly benefit applications that are bandwidth or file-size intensive".

QNAP has your back when it comes to networking standards with the Thunderbolt 3 to 10GbE adapter, of which there are two models. The first is the QNA-T310G1T which rocks a Thunderbolt 3 to 10GbE Multi-Gigabit (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M) port while the QNA-T310G1S has one 10GbE SFP+ port. The adapters will work on both Windows and Mac PCs, as long as you have the appropriate drivers installed.

There's no official price on the QNAP QNA Thunderbolt 3 to 10GbE adapter just yet, but once I find one I'll update this article. Until then, awesome work, QNAP!
