Intel E10G81GT2CX4 overview

  • 1Description

The NE020 10 Gb PCI Express Accelerated Ethernet Adapter from Intel offers full function 10 Gb Ethernet NIC capabilities plus acceleration of networking, storage and clustering protocols in an ultra low power package. It consumes less power and gives sustained performance. Moreover, it supports simultaneous connectivity to scale out data and storage network.

The NE020 10 Gb adapter is setting new standards in application support, networking performance, power efficiency and configuration simplicity.

Sustained, Predictable Performance under Load
The NE020 10 Gb adapter features a patented Virtual Pipeline Architecture that strikes the optimal balance between high performance, low power consumption and small BOM. Unmatched low latency, high bandwidth and power efficiency are the result of seamlessly coordinated transport offload, RDMA and user level direct access (ULDA) techniques used in combination to accelerate various networking protocols. Scalable, deterministic performance is sustained in heavily loaded multiple connection environments such as multi-core, multiprocessor nodes, high-performance computing and the dense, compute and I/O intensive configurations that characterize virtualized environments.
Lower Power, Higher Processing Densities
At 6.2 W (typical), NE020 10 Gb adapters consume only one third of the power required by some competitive adapters. Critical in power constrained data centers, such power savings support higher computing densities within the existing power envelopes, increasing processing per square foot.
Transparent Application Support
The NE020 10 Gb adapter supports a broad range of industry-standard APIs. Existing applications using these APIs require no modification, re-compilation or porting.
Standard Media Interfaces
NE020 10 Gb PCIe low-profile adapters are available in single-port models supporting standard copper and optical media interfaces.
One Adapter, One Firmware Image
A single low power NE020 10 Gb PCIe adapter seamlessly replaces separate adapters for networking, storage and clustering. This reduces power, cost and complexity as well as simplifies management. A single firmware and OS driver image supports different program interfaces and network protocols, simplifying both deployment and ongoing maintenance.
  • Sustained performance latency under 6 μsec, even heavily loaded
  • Over 18 Gbps bandwidth (bi-directional)
  • Low power consumption, less than 6.2W power
  • Single adapter supports simultaneous connectivity to scale out data and storage networks
  • Single firmware image supports all program interfaces and network protocols
  • Patented architecture implements hardware TOE, iWARP (RDMA over Ethernet), ULDA
  • Single-port models supporting standard copper and optical media interfaces
  • Compute and IO intensive applications in financial services, Oil and Gas, CAD/CAE and other industries
