Intel® Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controllers-Optimized for Multi-Core Intel® Processor-based Servers

The Intel® 82598 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller and the Intel® 82575EB Gigabit Ethernet Controller are optimized for multi-core Intel® Xeon® processor-based systems to alleviate the network throughput and overhead problems associated with previousgeneration server platforms.

In these previous platforms, application data requests were associated with a single processor and handled sequentially, raising CPU utilization levels. Next-generation Intel® Ethernet controllers distribute the workload to available processor cores using MSI-X and VMDQ, receive-side scaling, and Scalable I/O, which use multiple queues to process multiple requests simultaneously. These improvements result in lower CPU utilization, lower latency, and better application response times.
