Intel 10 Gigabit Ethernet

Postby rdg » 16 Dec 2009, 22:20

I am reading the 7.2 Release Hardware Notes. It says

[i386,amd64] The ixgb(4) driver supports the following cards:
Intel PRO/10GbE LR Server Adapter
Intel PRO/10GbE SR Server Adapter

However, I have been unable to match this with a model number of a card from Intel. Can someone point me to what exact cards from Intel are supported?

Maybe the controller/device types can help your (re)search along (e.g. on the Intel site).

Thank you for your reply.

This does help me in researching 10 Gig E cards form Intel. The 82597EX is "End of Life" according to Intel's web site. There also do not appear to be data sheets available for it. Thus it would not be a good choice for me.

I just found this from the Intel website. Looks like they have added support for the 82598 and 82599.
