    OF all X2 cards out there most are DDR or SFP ( 20 or 10Gb) there are VPI X2 with QDR (40Gb) in my thoughts a QSFP connector will mate best with another QSFP cable wise.. 1 : 1 .. such a cable is avail.. i agree . "Why connect a 40Gb switch to a 10Gb port ? unless by logical reason, only...

    OK the 5030 has QDR (40Gb ports) that is identical to QSFP .. agree not 56Gb (i dont care for 56) As i want to have an ALL IB ( with packet filter steering) internal cluster only the web connects via http// (hoping to keep 100,000 client sessions open, and serviced at a rate of 4 - 8 packets...

    this is my 1st small cluster project (without a great Unix background) hoping to break records with IB OFED support.. is it OK to ask from a range of accumulating issues, now that purchased Mellanox switches / ConnectX NICs are sitting in the US ..waiting for a bright Closure / Go / node.js...
