AdvancedIO Systems will reveal at the Low Latency Summit in London its newest generation of 10GE network cards powered by Altera’s 28 nm Stratix V FPGAs. The V5031 design pushes the performance limit of what technology can achieve today in a small form factor that fits most platforms deployed in financial markets.

“There is an insatiable demand for scalable processing density, lower latency, and ease of programming to offer creative financial services in a competitive environment,” said Mohammad Darwish, chief executive officer at AdvancedIO Systems. “Our technology has been proven to accelerate processing along the trade path and ultimately increase profit margins for our financial customers. We are excited about the possibilities.”

I would be even more impressed if that was over copper using something like CAT-7 cable. Still pretty cool nonetheless, nice find. :cool:

Why? 10GBASE-T only requires CAT6a. And how does cable type influence whether you're impressed or not? Personally I'd worry more about CPU load.

I think is done with the hardware existing on the card...That big CPU is there for a reason, right? ;):D

True, but I was using CAT-7 as an example. CAT6a can't be run more than 100 meters, and even with its shielding, alien crosstalk can still be a problem. Clearly this isn't something you would give workstations (yet), but rather connections between a 10gbit switch and servers in a rack or datacenter.

Anyways my point is that I'm typically more impressed when copper is used rather than optical as you can push a ridiculous amount of data over a multi-mode fiber cable and honestly, if you can afford optical networking for your servers, I bet you can afford servers that won't bottleneck if work is offloaded to the CPU, but that isn't the point I was trying to make, and yes, it is better to have the CPU do less work on things like I/O.

on the matter of copper..., there's a good reason why this kind of ultra-low-latency NICs don't use copper: it's ass-slow, 10Gbase-T has at least an order of magnitude more latency than 10Gbase-SR/LR WITH much more power consumption per-port(the copper PHYs eat power like mad) -altought intel has made huge advances with one-chip solution with integrated PHY in the sub-5W range with the X520 and X540 series cards, Broadcom as well with their 58000 series-

And no matter what category cable you use, run limit will ALWAYS be 100m for ethernet, doesn't matters if there's xtalk or whatever, it's guaranteed to run at 10Gbit@100m@cat6a per the specification.

on the subject of the card, with the massive ammount of RAM in that board, i'm guessing this card is akin to the killer-NIC, it has a complete processing environment where customers can run specific latency-sensitive small "apps" maybe at fixed throughtput or fixed latency-per-transaction regardless of load. If done right it would be quite hard to get that performance on the server main cpu.

For example: you have a server with a DB engine and put the front-end app on the advancedIO NIC, which makes your CPU focus on the DB whislt the nic handles transactions, that means your server suddenly is a complete app platform without sacrificing performance by mixing/sharing the workload and you possibly don't need another server to act as front-end
