ixgbe (82598 10 Gigabit network device) driver released

The Intel® 82598 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller is a next-generation, PCI Express* 2.0 (2.5 Gbps) controller with balanced features and energy-efficient design that meets the throughput and latency requirement of bandwidth-hungry applications.

The controller also supports stateless offloads such as TCP segmentation offload, header replications/splitting, and Direct Cache Access (DCA) to lower CPU utilization. In addition, the Intel 82598 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller offers advanced features for Virtualization and Storage over Ethernet all within a very low power envelop of 4.8W (dual port).
