Industry-leading, energy-efficient design 

For 10/40GbE performance and multi-core processors.


      The Intel® Ethernet Controller XL710 offers both Single-port 40GbE, and is backwards compatible to 10GbE. The XL710 is part of the Intel® Ethernet 700 Series, the foundation for server connectivity, providing broad interoperabilitycritical 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.


       • PCI Express* (PCIe) v3.0, X8

       • Supports 1 x 40GbE configurations

       • Exceptional low-power controllers

       • Network Virtualization offloads including VXLAN, GENEVE, NVGRE, MPLS, and VXLAN-GPE with NetworkService Headers (NSH)

       • Intel® Ethernet Flow Director for hardware based application traffic steering

       • Dynamic Device Personalization (DDP) enables increased packet processing efficiency for NFV and Cloud deployments

       • Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) optimized for efficient packet processing

       • Excellent small packet performance for network appliances and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)

       • Intelligent offloads to enable high performance on servers with Intel® Xeon® processors

       • I/O virtualization innovations for maximum performance in a virtualized server
