    Intel x520 Data Transfers

    maminsb

      After speaking with an Intel rep this NIC does not have a built in DMA engine.

       

      Does it provide some other data transfer mechanism that allows for programming the controller to specify source address, destination address, and buffer size (i.e., # bytes)

      to selectively xfer large chunks of data using the x520 resources without impacting CPU performance?
