Intel introduces 10Gig cards with I/O acceralaration technology

Quick update, two days ago Intel announced its 10 Gig Ethernet card based on its I/O accelaration technology. Intel is promoting an alternative to TCP and RDMA offload wuth a card that can work better with the processor's I/O capabilities. Basically Intel's strategy is to promote its processors while discounting ethernet cards. This product will a[pparently be launched in September with Inte's Caneland platform serving 4-socket 4-core Xeon processors. I will dig up some more research literature about this product in the coming days.
