Conserve valuable PCI Express (PCIe*) server slots while adding four ports of Gigabit Ethernet capability with the Intel® Gigabit VT Quad Port Server Adapter. The dedicated input/output (I/O) bandwidth of PCIe ensures priority performance on each port—without bus sharing—for Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in Category-5 networks, as well as a low-profile design, which improves server throughput and rack density at the same time.
Intel Gigabit VT Quad Port Server Adapters are optimized for virtualized environments, supporting multiple queues, alleviating I/O bottlenecks between virtual machines. Additionally, the Intel Gigabit VT Quad Port Server Adapter enables Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology1 (Intel® I/OAT) with support for Intel® QuickData for faster I/O processing on the new Quad-Core and Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers.
The Intel Gigabit VT Quad Port Server Adapter represents the seventh generation of Intel® Network Adapters for Gigabit Ethernet, and features 10/100/1000 Mbps self-configuration for compatibility with mixed-speed network infrastructures.
