Not my listing. I ordered 2 last week and they came in over the weekend with both the tall and short brackets. Appear to be new, work great at 10gb, 5gb, 2.5gb speeds.

So you're that dude who bought 2 of it 30 minutes before I did.


I was sorting out the outrageous $120 UPS shipping from US to Asia with the seller, and I managed to get it down to ~$40+ by shipping using USPS Priority.

Still kinda high but for $120 shipped I'll take it...


Edit: Which mad man bought 8, show yourself!

Postman just dropped this off. The clamshell packaging came cut up... odd..

Replacing the I350-T2 that I'm currently using, but no 10GbE gear to test the NIC at the moment.

Kinda sad that I lost WOL too, gotta use the onboard Realtek NIC for WOL from now on.

Loopback testing over the real ethernet link is tricky, because the kernel always wants to use its internal loopback interface. No packet will reach the cable. But you can, on Linux using network namespaces. Here is how I tested a bunch of ConnectX3 at 56 GBps link rate...

Setup and iperf server:
Bash:
#!/bin/sh

echo Setup
ip netns add ns_server
ip netns add ns_client

ip link set enp1s0 netns ns_server
ip netns exec ns_server ip addr add dev enp1s0 192.168.1.1/24
ip netns exec ns_server ip link set dev enp1s0 up
ip netns exec ns_server ethtool -s enp1s0 speed 56000 autoneg off

ip link set enp1s0d1 netns ns_client
ip netns exec ns_client ip addr add dev enp1s0d1 192.168.1.2/24
ip netns exec ns_client ip link set dev enp1s0d1 up
ip netns exec ns_client ethtool -s enp1s0d1 speed 56000 autoneg off

ip netns exec ns_server iperf -s -B 192.168.1.1 -w 16M

echo ""
echo Teardown

killall iperf
killall bwm-ng
sleep 0.5

ip netns del ns_server
ip netns del ns_client

echo Done

exit 0
Client, also iperf:
Bash:
#!/bin/sh

while :; do
    ip netns exec ns_client iperf -c 192.168.1.1 -B 192.168.1.2 -P 2 -w 16M -t 300
    sleep 0.1
done
Measuring with bwm-ng:
Bash:
#!/bin/sh
ip netns exec ns_server bwm-ng
