Intel® PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter
Two Gigabit Copper Server Connections in a Single PCI Express* Slot
Conserve valuable PCI Express (PCIe*) server slots while adding multi-port Gigabit Ethernet capability with the Intel® PRO/1000 PT Dual Port 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. Additionally, the Intel PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter is designed to provide high performance in multi-processor systems by efficiently balancing network loads across multiple Central Processing Units (CPUs) when used with Receive-Side Scaling from Microsoft or Scalable I/O on Linux*.
The Intel PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter features 10/100/ 1000 Mbps self-configuration for compatibility with mixed-speed network devices, and is supported by Intel® PRO Intelligent Install and the new Intel® PROSet Utility for Microsoft* Device Manager. Intel PROSet simplifies adapter installation and gives you point-and-click power to configure and manage all your Intel PRO Network Connections
for connectivity you can count on.
