Windows device driver information for Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller

The Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller device is a next generation NetLink GbE (Gigabit Ethernet) controller founded on the bus architecture of PCI Express. This device is developed especially for consumers and SMBs (small to medium businesses). This single chip NetLink GbE is feature packed with enterprise performance and functions to allow for ultra low power consumption needed for today’s SMB and consumer markets. The device’s unparalleled stability and reliability founded on 7 generations of proven Broadcom MAC technology (media access controller). The Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller device with PCI Express functions allows consumer and SMB markets to attain the performance provided by the present and future generations of PCs. It is completely pin compatible with Broadcom’s BCM5788 Gigabit Ethernet Controller device (PCI based), delivering the capability of integrating the bus architectures of PCI Express or PCI on the same notebook/ laptop or desktop computer system.

Outdated Drivers?

Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates

This device is fully incorporated 10/ 100/ 1000BASE-T GbE MAC and PHY (physical layer transceiver) solution ideal for networking applications. It effectively combines an incorporated PHY, buffer memory on chip, a bus interface based on PCI Express, and a MAC that is IEEE 802.3 compliant. The Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller device is manufactured in a 0.13 micron process that is low voltage in order for it to consume low power amounts. The PCI Express interface of this GbE device efficiently delivers non-blocking, wirespeed throughput and TCP/IP stack offload functions that considerably decrease the usage of the CPU (central processing unit). The TCP/IP functions implemented by the device can likewise heighten throughput to allow for quicker download speeds especially for large files. The Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller device also implements incorporated WOL switching that is capable of eliminating the need to use external components for power switching. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller errors before installing any driver updates.
