Industry-leading, energy-efficient design for

10/40GbE performance and multi-core processors.

Extending Intel® Virtualization Technology beyond server virtualization to the network with 

hardware optimizations and off-loads for the rapid provisioning of networks in an agile data center


The Intel® Ethernet Controller XL710 offers both Quad-port 10GbE, and is backwards compatible to 10GbE. 

The XL710 is part of the Intel® Ethernet 700 Series, the foundation for server connectivity, providing broad interoperability

critical performance optimizations, and increased agility for Communications, Cloud, and Enterprise IT network solutions.

• Interoperability 

- Multiple speeds and media types for broad compatibility backed by extensive testing and validation.

• Optimization 

- Intelligent offloads and accelerators to unlock network performance in servers with Intel® Xeon® processors.

• Agility 

- Both Kernel and Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) drivers for scalable packet processing.
