The QXG-10G2T-X710 supports is compatible with five speeds (10G / 5G / 2.5G / 1G / 100M) and can achieve up to 20Gbps transfer speeds by using both ports with Port Trunking. Network efficiency is boosted with SR-IOV and iSCSI support, and I/O-intensive and latency-sensitive virtualisation applications and data centres will greatly benefit.
