The Intel® Ethernet Network Adapter XXV710 is a new addition to the Intel® Ethernet 700 Series network adapters.
The Intel® Ethernet 700 Series network adapters address the demanding needs of the next-generation agile data center by providing unmatched features for both server and network virtualization, flexibility for LAN and SAN networks and proven, reliable performance.

Leading 10/25GbE Performance
The Intel Ethernet Network Adapter XXV710 delivers excellent performance with a theoretical throughput of 50Gb/s (25Gb/s single-port bi-directional), in a PCI Express v3.0 x8 slot.

Optimized performance vectors and key uses include:

  • Small Packet Performance: Achieves wire-rate throughput on smaller payload sizes (>69 bytes for 25GbE and 64 bytes for 10GbE in single port).
  • Bulk Transfer Performance: Delivers line-rate performance with low CPU usage for large application buffers.
  • Virtualized Performance: Alleviates hypervisor I/O bottlenecks by providing flow separation for Virtual Machines (VMs).
  • Network Virtualization: Network virtualization overlay offloads including VXLAN, NVGRE, GENEVE, MPLS, VXLAN-GPE with NSH.
