Product Highlights
  • 2 x PCI Express 10/100/1000 Mbps
  • Multi-Gigabit Scalability
  • Increased Uptime
  • Advanced Server Features
  • Built on Intel Lead-Free Technology

The PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter from Intel represents the fifth generation of Intel network adapters for Gigabit Ethernet and features 10/100/1000 Mbps self-configuration for compatibility with mixed-speed network devices. With the Dual Port Server Adapter you can conserve PCIe server slots while adding multi-port Gigabit Ethernet capability. 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. Additionally, the Dual Port Server Adapter is designed to provide high performance in multi-processor systems by efficiently balancing network loads across multiple Central Processing Units when used with Receive-Side Scaling from Microsoft or Scalable I/O on Linux.

For easy installation and management, all Intel PRO Network Connections are supported by Intel PRO Intelligent Install and the new Intel PROSet Utility for Microsoft Device Manager. Intel PROSet simplifies adapter installation and gives you point-and-click power to configure and manage all your Intel PRO Network Connections for connectivity you can count on.

Intel 8257 1 GB Gigabit Controller
Enables two Gigabit connections in a single adapter, delivering increased bandwidth for slot-constrained servers and providing high performance, reliability, and low power use in a single, integrated, dual port PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller chip
Load Balancing on Multiple CPUs
Increases performance on multi-processor systems by efficiently balancing network loads across CPU cores when used with Receive-Side Scaling from Microsoft or Scalable I/O on Linux
Interrupt Moderation
Delivers increased performance while significantly reducing CPU utilization
Compatible with x4, x8, and x16 Full-Height
Allows dual-port operation in almost any PCI Express server slot, except x1 slots, PCI Express slots and allows each port to operate without interfering with the other
Support for Most Network Operating Systems
Enables widespread deployment
Remote Management Support
Reduces support costs with remote management based on industry-wide standards
Category-5 Unshielded Twisted Pair, 4-Pair Cabling
Uses existing 4-pair cabling and saves re-wiring costs
