Dual Port Fiber Gigabit Ethernet PCI-X Server Adapter Intel® 82546GB Based

This product has been discontinuedEOL Notification

The Silicom Gigabit Ethernet Servers adapters are 64-bit/133Mhz PCI-X network interface cards that contain six/ four/ two independent Gigabit ports on one PCI-X adapter.

Silicom Gigabit Ethernet Server adapters are the ideal solution for implementing multiple network segments, mission-critical high-powered networking applications and environments within high performance servers.

Silicom Gigabit Ethernet Server adapters have an integrated hardware acceleration that performs TCP/UDP/IP checksum offload and TCP segmentation. The host processing offloads accelerators frees CPU for application processing.
