Ethernet Adapters

Intel Ethernet Market Positioning

Intel is recognized as a leader and innovator of Ethernet products, with controllers and adapters from 1 to100GbE, delivering unique capabilities to address customer needs. Intel delivers new technologies and products acrossmultiple market segments that demand high performance.Intel is further differentiated in the market by providing outstanding global customer support and a limited lifetime warranty for its retail Ethernet products.



Efficient, predictable, high-performance networks for key workloads More predictable performance for key applications

Application Device Queues (ADQ) technology prioritizes network services and
shapes network traffic to deliver more-predictable application response times,
reduced latency, and increased throughput for high-priority applications from
the edge to the cloud.

Storage and HPC applications
Supports iWARP and RoCEv2 RDMA and NVMe over TCP with ADQ to
provide customer choice and speed latency-sensitive workloads, including
hyperconverged storage and HPC.


Optimized packet processing options for NFV
The Intel Ethernet 800 Series supports three packet processing options in one
adapter, enabling CoSPs to choose the best approach for their environment
• Enhanced Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) for faster network functions
virtualization (NFV), advanced packet forwarding, and highly efficient packet
• Address Family_eXpress Data Path (AF_XDP) for cloud-native VNFs.
• Vector packet processing (VPP), designed to process more than one packet
at a time with prefetching for lower latency.


Virtualized/containerized infrastructure
Up to 2x more resources (vs. Intel® Ethernet 700 Series) for highly virtualized
or containerized environments (256 VFs, 2K QPs, 768 VSIs).


One architecture spans 1GbE to 100GbE to meet a broad range of workload
performance needs, with comprehensive OS and PCIe 4.0 support
