Hello All,

I noticed a new 4 x 2.5g RJ45 type Network Card, based on Realtek RTL8245F. Unfortunately there is NOTHING on internet search for this new chip, just the older Realtek RTL8125B for 2.5g. Both cards I found seem to have nice heatsink with built in fan (look like same card design & manufacturer for both, but not QSnap).

Anyone know something about these new Realtek RTL8245F cards ?!? May be a while before solid drivers show up in usual applications & software.

Cheers,
ABQ :)

Wow
That chip is unknown in google, Realtek etc.

The card have active cooling. That's odd for this device class .

I'm looking for the drivers for this card but no clues until now ...

This image sugest that are 4 lan chips and 1 pcie switch.
So I guess 4 x rtl8125 in disguise ...

I bought one card and is exactly what I guess. 4x RTL8125b and 1 asmedia pcie bridge chip.
