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?

Thanks Sincerely Intel Partner and reseller gabe Ruiz (Valdes Automation) mailto:gabriel_ruiz@verizon.net gabriel_ruiz@verizon.net

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.

Please refer to website for the comparison: http://ark.intel.com/compare/50480,50397 ARK | Compare Intel® Products
