Performance bonus with Dual LAN?

OriginalFlavor

I have a NUC8i7HVK with Dual LAN ports.

Is there any performance gain (gaming) using both LAN ports on the same network?

Hello @OriginalFlavor

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.


Just to make sure we understand correctly the scenario that you would like to achieve, could you please clarify the following?


When you said "Is there any performance gain (gaming) using both LAN ports on the same network?", regarding the underlined text, do you mean using both ports in a kind of "Link aggregation" configuration (using both Ethernet links together so they act as a single logical link)?

Or do you mean like just having 2 separate connections on the same network so each one is managing individual network traffic connections or may having one of them acting as a "backup" for the other one?


Please feel free to elaborate more on the configuration you would like to achieve and/or provide any other information that may be useful to understand better the request/scenario.


Best regards,
