Intel has expanded its Ethernet 800 series with the addition of the Ethernet Network Adapter E810-XXVDA2, a high-performance and versatile 10/25GbE adapter featuring two 25GbE SFP28 ports. 

This new adapter is now part of Rutronik’s product range. The Ethernet 800 series includes network adapters with various port numbers and form factors, designed for the efficient and powerful utilisation of server processors.

These adapters provide enhanced application throughput for demanding cloud workloads and optimised packet classification and sorting for high-bandwidth networking and communications tasks. Supporting speeds from 1 GbE to 100 GbE, the Ethernet 800 Series features new and improved capabilities such as Application Device Queues (ADQ), Dynamic Device Personalisation (DDP), and support for iWARP and RoCEv2 Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA). These adapters deliver performance tailored to specific workloads and the flexibility to adapt to evolving network requirements. 

The Ethernet 800 Series is continually evolving, enabling developers to leverage workload-optimised performance and adaptability to changing network needs. The series boasts reliability and proven interoperability with fast data transmission.

The E810-XXVDA2 offers:

  • Enhanced security with hardware Root-of-Trust and authentication during NVM reading and power-on
  • Improved performance and cost efficiency through support for SFP+ and SFP28 transceivers
  • Better manageability with PLDM headers for increased flexibility in firmware management

The Ethernet Port Configuration Tool (EPCT) allows for flexible port and speed configurations for the 100GbE 800 Series network adapters, transforming one port into eight 10GbE ports, four 25GbE ports, and more, with up to six configuration options available.

Key features of the Intel Ethernet Network Adapter E810-XXVDA2 include:

  • Dual Port SFP28
  • PCI Express (PCIe) 4.0 x8
  • Application Device Queues (ADQ)
  • Dynamic Device Personalisation (DDP)
  • Support for both RDMA iWARP and RoCEv2
  • IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP)


  • Cloud workflows: Edge services, web servers, database applications, King servers, and storage targets
  • High-bandwidth communication workloads: Mobile Core, 5G RAN
  • High-performance servers: NFV, storage, HPC-AI, or hybrid cloud
