Rating: 3/5Remember to pick up the XFP optic tranciever!
This review is from: SMC LG-ERICSSON SMC10GPCIE-XFP Server Adapter 10/20Gbps PCI Express 1.1 x 8 1 x XFP module cage( IEEE 802.3ae)
Pros: I don't own this product, but want to make a couple of notes;
Remember that the XFP slot in this card needs an optical transceiver, which appears to be SMC part SMC10GXFP-SR, Newegg part N82E16833129071 for SR multimode fiber, which is probably what you want.
If you want to do 10GBASE-T, you can look at SMC SMC10GPCIe-10BT, which is a copper interface card. The only problem with this card is lack of standards-based 10GBASE-T switches available on the market at this time. However, if you want to do back-to-back crossover, two of those cards would be great.
Cons: I don't own this product.
Make sure your system bus can move the 10Gbps of data. Also, google around for "tcp tuning". Most systems will need TCP tuning in order to move 10Gbps of TCP traffic, even on low-latency LANs.
