Intel 10 Gigabit AF DA/CX4 Dual Port Server Adapters

Intel 10 Gigabit AF DA/CX4 Dual
Port Server Adapters

Intel 10 Gigabit AF DA/CX4 Dual Port Server Adapters each offer two ports combined with a low-profile PCI Express* form factor, making them ideal for slot-constrained environments. The escalating deployments of servers with multi-core processors and demanding applications such as High-Performance Computing (HPC), database clusters, virtualized servers, and video on demand are driving the need for 10 Gigabit connections in the server rack. Based on the Intel 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, Intel's 10 Gigabit AF DA/CX4 Dual Port Server Adapters are each designed to meet the throughput and latency requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications, while offering a low-power envelope for energy efficiency.

Intel 10 Gigabit AF DA Dual Port Server Adapter


Intel 10 Gigabit AF DA Dual Port Server Adapter is a low-cost, low-power adapter that provides direct attach copper twinaxial cable connections between servers and a top-of-rack switch. Two ports, coupled with a low-profile PCI Express* form factor, make this adapter ideal for slot-constrained environments. Using direct attach copper cables compliant with the SFP + MSA SFF-8431 specification, the Intel 10 Gigabit AD DA Dual Port Server Adapter is well-suited for customers who require low-cost "in-the-rack" connections of less than 10 meters between server and top-of-rack switch.

Based on the 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, Intel's 10 Gigabit AF DA Server Adapter is designed to meet the throughput and latency requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications, while offering a very low-power envelope for energy efficiency.

Intel 10 Gigabit CX4 Dual Port Server Adapter


Intel 10 Gigabit CX4 Dual Port Server Adapter follows the 802.ak specification, offering the lowest cost per port of all the current 10GbE interconnects. The low-profile PCI Express* form factor combined with two CX4 ports and a low-power envelope for energy efficiency, makes the board ideal for slot-constrained environments. 10GBASE-CX4 adapters are well-suited for customers with shorter distance and low latency requirements.

Designed to meet the need of high-speed, low-latency interconnects of HPC clusters, the Intel 10 Gigabit CX4 Dual Port Server Adapter provides bandwidth-intensive applications with highly affordable 10GbE network performance for distances up to 15 meters with standard twinaxial or up to 100 meters with Intel Connects cable. Based on the Intel 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, Intel's next-generation 10 Gigabit CX4 Dual Port Server Adapter is designed to meet the throughput requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications. Intel's new 10GBASE-CX4 adapter can also be used in wiring closets and server racks, as well as data centers to aggregate servers.
