Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter I340 Product Family
Based on the new Intel® 82580 Gigabit Ethernet Controller, the Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter I340 is Intel’s fourth generation PCIe* GbE adapter. This adapter showcases the industry’s first fully integrated quad-port PCIe Gen2 GbE controller, providing a smaller footprint and lower power dissipation. In addition, the Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter I340 offers advanced features, including support for multi-core processors and server virtualization as well as a scalable PCI Express* Gen 2.0 interface.
Intel’s first eco-friendly halogen-free board combines low power and cost for the best price/performance ratio in a quad-port solution available today.
