Based on the new Intel® 82580 Gigabit Ethernet Controller, the Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter I340 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 Server Adapter I340 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.
