Myri-10G "Gen1" (2.5 GT/s) PCI Express NICs
Test Results with "Gen1" PCI Express Motherboards

Myri-10G "Gen1" (2.5 GT/s) PCI Express NICs (10G-PCIE-8A-* and 10G-PCIE-8B-* NICs) have been tested in many commercially available motherboards and with all of the common "Gen1" PCI Express chipsets. The following is a list of motherboards and chip sets in which these tests have verified interoperability.

Clicking on the name of the motherboard in the above table will yield two performance measurements: the PCI Express Read DMA and Write DMA performance for the motherboard, and the Myri10GE (10-Gigabit Ethernet driver) netperf send performance data for two Myri-10G "Gen1" (2.5 GT/s) PCI Express NICs (10GBase-CX4 or 10GBase-SR) connected point-to-point (switchless). Except where noted, the Linux operating system was used for all of the above interoperability testing.

We are continuing to test additional chipsets and motherboards, and will provide new test data as it becomes available.
