Product Details

The Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X710 family addresses the demanding needs of the next-generation agile data center by providing unmatched features for virtualization, flexibility for LAN and SAN networking, and proven reliable performance.

The family of adapters delivers superior performance up to 80 Gb/s (40 Gb/s Tx, 40 Gb/s Rx) bidirectional throughput (quad-port adapter required) in a PCI Express v3.0 x8 slot.

The X710 adapter family delivers superior performance with a theoretical throughput of 80 Gb/s (40Gb/s Tx; 40Gb/s Rx) bidirectional throughput (quad-port adapter required), in a PCI Express v3.0 x8 slot. Optimized performance vectors and key uses include:

  • Small Packet Performance: Achieves wire-rate throughput on smaller payload sizes (>128 Bytes for 40 GbE and >64 Bytes for 10 GbE
  • Bulk Transfer Performance: Delivers line-rate performance with low CPU usage for large application buffers
  • Virtualized Performance: Alleviates hypervisor I/O bottlenecks by providing flow separation for Virtual Machines (VMs)
  • Network Virtualization: Network virtualization overlay offloads including VXLAN, NVGRE, Geneve, Network Service Headers (NSH)
  • Storage Performance: Enables competitive performance with native OS drivers and intelligent offload for NAS (NFS, SMB), and SAN (iSCSI)
