Energy-Efficient, Next-Generation 10 Gigabit Performance
10 Gigabit Ethernet has moved past the early adoption stage and is rapidly becoming the 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 a 10 Gigabit connection. The Intel® 82598 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller is a next-generation, PCI Express* 2.0 (2.5 Gbps) controller with balanced features and energy-efficient design that meets the throughput and latency requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications. The 82598 controller is designed for multi-core processors and implements advanced features for efficient routing of packets using multiple queues as well as including load balancing of interrupts using MSI-X. The controller also supports stateless offloads such as TCP segmentation offload, header replications/splitting, and Direct Cache Access (DCA) to lower CPU utilization. In addition, the 82598 controller offers advanced features for Virtualization and Storage over Ethernet all within a very low power envelope of 4.8W (dual port).
