Designed for the demanding requirements of power users, content creators, and others who push the envelope, the ROG AERION plugs you into a new era of 10G* home networking. It's refined from our 10G Express under the name of a mythical horse with legendary speed. The full-sized heatsink keeps the card cool while transferring massive files like 4K videos, and support for intermediate 2.5G and 5G connectivity lets you step up to faster networks for maximum flexibility. Choose the bandwidth that meets your needs and enjoy ultra-low latency at any speed.

The next-generation 10Gbit/s (10GBase-T) ROG AREION 10G delivers superfast speeds to match the demands of today's ultra-busy networks. Up to 10X faster than gigabit Ethernet, it performs bandwidth-intensive tasks such as 4K video streaming or file transfers in stride, so you'll never run out of network horsepower.

Installing ROG AREION 10G couldn't be easier: Just insert the card into a suitable PCIe 3.0 slot and connect your existing copper network cables to the RJ45 Ethernet port. It's that simple. There's no need to install any software or set up the card — ROG AREION 10G is instantly ready to run at full 10Gbps speed!

The Full-sized heatsink with its stylish ROG-themed aluminum cover doesn't just look good — it provides a huge cooling area to silently dissipate all the heat. This means that ROG AREION 10G runs cool and stable, even in the heat of the toughest battle.

Separate LED speed and activity indicators on ROG AREION 10G let you see the current LAN speed and network activity at a glance. For convenience, there are external LEDs (on the RJ45 port) and also LEDs on the edge of the PCB, so you can easily keep an eye on things — no matter how your rig is designed.
