Hello Dear Community,

I am looking for a 40GBit Ethernet network card for ESXi 8

I can think of Mellanox ConnectX-4 or Intel X710 cards.

Are there possibly "cheaper" solutions ? Does anyone have a hint for me?

Cards with Connectx-3 pro are way cheaper.
I use HP parts like 544+FLR-QSFP ( flexlom ) with flexlom to pcie adapter.

@prdtabim As far as I know, all ConnectX-3 are kicked out with ESXi 8.

@i386 Thx for getting me aware of this circumstance
