The Intel® 10 Gigabit AF DA Dual Port Server Adapter from Dell™ is the newest member of Intel's robust family of 10 Gigabit products. It is designed as a low-cost, low-power adapter. This adapter provides direct attach copper twinaxial cable connections between servers and a top-of-rack switch. The Intel 10 Gigabit AD DA Dual Port Server Adapter is well-suited for customers who require low-cost "in-the-rack" connections of less than 10 meters between server and top-of-rack switch.
This Server Adapter is designed to meet the throughput and latency requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications, while offering a very low-power envelope for energy efficiency. The low-power, efficient design allows for two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a single PCIe adapter. Additionally, Intel 10 Gigabit AFDA Server Adapters enable Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology with support for Intel® QuickData for faster I/O processing on the new Quad-Core and Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers.
