    Server Network adapter


      I have an interest in two network adapter products;

      1) Intel Manufacturer product # PWLA8391, single port 1Gb ethernet network adapter which wholesales for $26

      2) Intel Manufacturer product # E1G42ETBLK, dual port 1Gb ethernet network adapter which wholesales for $142.


      I can not understand why would anyone buy the $142 dual port model if they could buy two of the $26 model.


      There must be some performance difference between those two configurations.  Could anyone explain, what that

      difference is?

          Dear GabeRuiz,


          Thank you for contacting Intel Customer Support.


          Yes, you are correct.  The E1G42ETBLK, being a server adapter, has more new features available compared to the PWLA8391GT, which is a desktop adapter.

          Some of the features available in E1G42ETBLK Adapter are support for virtualization technology, teaming, latest operating systems.
