What is Intel XL710?

What is Intel XL710?

Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter XL710 (Intel® Ethernet CNA XL710) addresses the demanding needs of the next-generation agile data center by providing unmatched features for both server and network virtualization, flexibility for LAN and SAN networks, and proven, reliable performance.

What is the maximum data rate for Intel 800 series NUCS?

800 Series controllers support speeds up to 100GbE, for high-performance server workloads such as NFV, storage, HPC-AI, and hybrid cloud.

What is Intel Columbiaville?

The new Intel 800-Series Ethernet controllers and PCIe cards, using the Columbiaville code-name, are focused mainly on one thing aside from providing a 100G connection – meeting customer requirements and targets for connectivity and latency.

What is Intel Ethernet connection?

The Intel® Ethernet Connection I218 is a single-port Gigabit Ethernet Physical Layer Transceiver (PHY). It connects to an integrated Media Access Controller (MAC) through a dedicated interconnect. The Intel® Ethernet Connection I218 supports operation at 1000/100/10 Mb/s data rates.

How do I install Intel network adapter?

To do so:

  1. Extract and decompress the downloaded file (.exe) to a folder.
  2. Go to Device Manager.
  3. Expand the category “Network adapters”.
  4. Click Browser my computer for driver software.
  5. Click Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
  6. Check the box next to “Show compatible hardware” and click Have Disk.

What does an Ethernet controller do?

A computer or laptop Ethernet controller allows you to make a wired connection to a computer network. This provides access to the network programs and resources, including a high-speed Internet connection.

How do I identify my ethernet controller?

  1. Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security.
  2. Under System, click Device Manager.
  3. Double-click Network adapters to expand the section.
  4. Right-click the Ethernet Controller with the exclamation mark and select Properties.
  5. Go to Details tab, and then click Hardware IDs.

Do LAN drivers need Ethernet?

Like any other device in a computer, you cannot use your Ethernet adapter, or network card, unless you install a device driver for it. Generally, computers running Windows 7 should install most network cards automatically.

How many Ethernet ports can a Fortville XL710 have?

On the Fortville side it gets slightly more complex. One can get two 40 gigabit Ethernet ports using standard QSFP+ connections. The trick is that is 80gbps total. That number is higher than the PCIe 3.0 bus. PCIe 3.0 is 7.877 gigabits per second. Network cards like the XL710-am2 are limited to server standard PCIe 3.0 x8 slots.

What is the Gbps of the xl710-am2?

Network cards like the XL710-am2 are limited to server standard PCIe 3.0 x8 slots. We can therefore do some simple math and 7.877 * 8 = 63.08gbps. Of course there is overhead so I would be happy to achieve say 88% of that.

How efficient is Fortville?

According to the official ARK pages Fortville is a 28nm part with a 7w TDP! Doing some ridiculously simple math on efficiency: Spring Fountain X520-DA2 – 20/8.6 =2.33gbps/ watt That is a 3.87x improvement in efficiency with Fortville.

How many Fortville controllers can I fit on a 2U server?

In terms of physical slots, 2U servers can easily fit three Fortville controllers (four if one is onboard) and have another 2-3 PCIe 3.0 x8 slots open for storage. Again, this may not be the ideal architecture for a number of reasons, but with Fortville, these types of architectures become practical to experiment with.
