i want to know the power consumption of the I210-T1 and I350-T2 adapters cause I'm not sure
if it's right what the datasheed says.
Intel writes 0.81 Watt for the "Intel Ethernet Server Adapter I210-T1" but the "Intel Ethernet Server Adapter I350-T2" needs 4.40 Watt?
And then there is from HP the "E0X95AA Intel Ethernet I210-T1 GbE" where HP writes 3.00 Watt.
I believe the Intel and HP cards are nearly the same, so why that big difference.
Also i can use 5 "Intel Ethernet Server Adapter I210-T1" and still have lower power consumption then with 1 I350-T2?
The question was more if a i350-T2 really needs 4.40 Watt.
If so that means i can use 5 i210-T1 and the power consumption is less then with just one i350-T2?
5 Ethernet connections = 4 Watt
2 Ethernet connections = 4.4 Watt
Based on our technical spec i350-T2 power consumption is 4.40 Watts
let me further check on this as well.
thats what I'm talking about. I really wonder about the high power consumption of the i350-T2.
Especially now that you confirmed that the i210 really needs just 0.81 Watts.
I210-T1 is the gigabit server adapter (which is the NIC you can install and remove from the system), you may refer to

While I210 refers to the ethernet controller which refers to onboard NIC. http://ark.intel.com/products/family/2469/Intel-Gigabit-Ethernet-Network-Connection Intel® Gigabit Ethernet Network Connection
They are using the same driver
