Intel® PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Low Profile Server Adapter
Connectivity you can count on
Conserve valuable PCI Express* (PCIe*) server slots while adding multi-port Gigabit Ethernet capability with the Intel® PRO/1000 PT Quad Port LP Server Adapter. The dedicated I/O bandwidth of PCIe ensures priority performance on each port, without bus sharing, for Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in Category-5 networks. The Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port LP Server Adapter improves performance in multi-processor systems by balancing network loads across multiple central processing units (CPUs). Additionally, the Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port LP Server Adapter supports Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel® I/OAT) for faster I/O processing on the new Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers.
Features and benefits
|Two Intel® 82571GB Gigabit Controllers||
Enables four Gigabit Ethernet connections on a single adapter, delivering increased bandwidth for slot-constrained servers and providing high performance, reliability, and low power use in two single, integrated, dual port PCI Express* Gigabit Ethernet controller chips
Enables higher bandwidth and throughput from standard and low-profile PCIe slots and servers
|Load balancing on multiple CPUs||
Increases performance on multi-processor systems by efficiently balancing network loads across CPU cores when used with Receive-Side Scaling from Microsoft or Scalable I/O on Linux*
|Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel® I/OAT)1||
Accelerates I/O with higher throughput and lower CPU utilization by offloading processing overhead
Multi-port cards provide the platform with the port density required for virtualized environments
Delivers increased performance while significantly reducing CPU utilization
|Compatible with x4, x8, and x16 full-height PCI Express slots||
Allows quad-port operation in almost any PCI Express server slot, except x1 slots, and allows each port to operate without interfering with the other
|Support for most network operating systems (NOS)||
Enables widespread deployment
|Remote management support||
Reduces support costs with remote management based on industry-wide standards
|Category-5 unshielded twisted pair (UTP), 4-pair cabling||
Uses existing 4-pair cabling and saves re-wiring costs
|RoHS compliant2, lead-free3 technology||
Compliant with the new European Union directive (effective July 2006) to reduce the use of hazardous materials
|Intel® PROSet Utility for Windows*||
Provides point-and-click power over individual adapters, advanced adapter features, connection teaming, and Device Manager virtual local area network (VLAN) configuration
|Advanced cable diagnostics||
Dynamically tests and reports network problems (error rate, cable length) and automatically compensates for cable issues (cross-over cable, wrong pin-out/polarity)
Backed by an Intel® limited lifetime warranty, 90-day money-back guarantee (U.S. and Canada), and worldwide support
1. Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel® I/OAT) requires an operating system that supports Intel I/OAT.
2. Lead and other materials banned in RoHS Directive are either (1) below all applicable substance thresholds as proposed by the EU or (2) an approved/pending exemption applies.
3. Lead has not been intentionally added, but lead may still exist as an impurity below 1000 ppm, or an approved RoHS exemption applies.
