  • VEP Intel I210 Controller on new computer

    Hi All,

    I am having two identical computers built. The mobo has one Intel 82579V LAN and one Intel 82574L LAN. But I just saw a newer version of the board with two Intel I210 controllers. The spec sheet for this controller says that the I210 is specifcally designed for audio streams.

    Is this likely to make a big difference in the stability/performance of my VEP connection? Should I bother upgrading them?

  • remember VEP does not stream audio (in the sense of sending wave-files across the ethernet-cable), it is just using the network connection.

    though there might be issues with a few network controllers in my opinion the more important part is the switch connecting both controllers.

    bandwidth or CPU load (originating from a network controller) is not an issue for VEP with gigabit at all ...

    and remember: only a CRAY can run an endless loop in just three seconds.
