Intel Ethernet I340 Server Adapter: Product Brief
Quad-port Gigabit Ethernet server adapter designed for multi-core processors and optimized for Virtualization & Unified Networking Environments
Based on the new Intel 82580 Gigabit Ethernet Controller, the Intel Ethernet I340 Server Adapter is Intel’s fourth generation of PCIe GbE adapter. This adapter showcases the industry’s first fully integrated quad-port PCIe Gen2 GbE controller, providing a smaller footprint and lower power dissipation. In addition, the Intel Ethernet I340 Server Adapter offers advanced features, including support for multi-core processors and server virtualization, as well as a scalable PCI Express Gen 2.0 interface. Intel’s first eco-friendly halogen-free board combines low-power and cost for the best price/performance ratio in a quad-port solution available today.
Working to create a more environmentally sustainable future, Intel is pleased to introduce its first halogen-free Ethernet Server Adapter. The transition to halogen-free products is not government mandated, but driven by Intel’s goal to eliminate the use of environmentally sensitive materials. The move to halogen-free products marks another step in our continual march toward minimizing the environmental footprint of Intel’s products, processes, and technologies.
Designed for Multi-Core Processors
This quad-port adapter provides high-performing, multi-port Gigabit connectivity in a multi-core platform as well as in a virtualized environment. In a multi-core platform, the adapter low halogen applies only to halogenated flame retardants and PVC in components. Halogens are below 1,000ppm bromine and 1,000ppm chlorine, supports technologies such as MSI-X, and Low Latency Interrupts that help accelerate data across the platform, improving application response times.
