Intel® Tofino™ 2
Second-generation P4-programmable Ethernet switch ASIC that continues to deliver programmability without compromise.
Intel® Tofino™ 2
Intel® Tofino™ 2 delivers up to 12.8 Tb/s throughput built on 7nm technology. Support up to 400GbE port speed for hyperscale, cloud, and service provider environments with the second generation of P4-programmable Ethernet switch ASICs.
Double the Performance
Benefit from the rich feature set of Intel® Tofino™ with double the bandwidth, up to 12.8 Tb/s.
Protocol-independent switch architecture (PISA) allows you to adjust protocols in software.
Precise Control over Packets
Code-specific functionalities into Ethernet switch packet processing, with more opportunities to innovate.
Target Market-Specific SKUs
Support advanced use cases: machine learning/deep learning fabrics, load balancers, 5G, and more.
Power Efficiency at Scale
Find the right balance of performance to energy consumption with reduced complexity and low latency.
Get more resources to generate packet lookup tables and export metadata to other admin tools.
More Flexibility to Optimize Performance
Scale performance even further with a higher-bandwidth ceiling and higher-speed SerDes lanes than the previous-generation programmable network switch ASIC. The Intel® Tofino™ 2 architecture also provides more packet processing resources to handle the most-demanding workloads in distributed applications, virtual machine scaling, artificial intelligence, and serverless deployments.
