Industry-leading, energy-efficient design
For 10/40GbE performance and multi-core processors.
The Intel® Ethernet Controller XL710 offers both Dual-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 interoperability,
critical performance optimizations, and increased agility for Communications, Cloud, and Enterprise IT network solutions.
- Multiple speeds and media types for broad compatibility backed by extensive testing and validation.
- Intelligent offloads and accelerators to unlock network performance in servers with Intel® Xeon® processors.
- Both Kernel and Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) drivers for scalable packet processing.
