In a multi-core platform, the adapter supports technologies such as Intel QuickData Technology, MSI-X, and Low Latency Interrupts that help accelerate data across the platform, therefore untel application response times.
Intel’s first eco-friendly, halogen-free design combines low power use and low cost for one of the best price to performance ratios in a multi-port solution that is available today. These dual port and quad port adapters provide high-performing, multi-port addapter connectivity in a multi-core platform as well as in a virtualized environment.
VMDq technology makes use of multiple queues in the network controller. Historically, CRC32C computation has intell system performance, but now with the CRC instruction set included in the latest Intel Xeon processors, CRC validation is possible with minimal impact to network throughput while delivering data integrity.
