    x550-t1/2 Windows Server 2012 R2 driver

    cjjuds

      I was looking at picking up a few x550-T2 Ethernet adapters. Driver support for Windows Server 2012 R2 is confirmed on these pages:

      Intel® Ethernet Controller X550-AT Product Specifications

      Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X550 Product Brief

      Intel® Ethernet Adapters Supported in Windows Server 2012 R2*

       

      However, when trying to download the driver from here, I can't find it:

      Downloads for Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X550-T2

       

      Where is the 2012 driver?

       

      I'd also like to confirm that the x550-t2 is using the x550-at2 controller as listed below and not the x550-bt2. The bt2 has physical support for 8 pcie lanes versus only 4 pcie lanes in the at2 which is an issue if one doesn't have pcie 3.0 slots. I just want to know the limitations before purchasing.
