Intel® 10 Gigabit CX4 Dual Port Server Adapter
10 Gigabit Performance at the Lowest Cost Per Port
Adding to a robust family of 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters, Intel is now offering the Intel® 10 Gigabit CX4 Dual Port Server Adapter. Following the 802.ak specification, the Intel 10 Gigabit CX4 Dual Port Server Adapter offers 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.
Next-Generation 10 Gigabit Performance
10 Gigabit Ethernet has moved past the early adoption stage and is rapidly becoming mainstay for backbones within enterprise and service provider networks. The escalating deployments of servers with multi-core processors and demanding applications such as High Performance Computing (HPC), database clusters, and video on demand are driving the need for 10 Gigabit connections.
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.
