Gigabyte has released a four port 10 Gigabit LAN card "CLN4M34" based on a Mellanox ConnectX-4 chip. The card makes use of an x16 PCI Express bus interface.
While there is very little to report on the card, the interesting thing remains to be the use of a fairly unknown IC, the Mellanox ConnectX-4". The network card itself is actively cooled with a small fan, the network interface is fitted with SFP 28 x 4. Optics like SFP+ is commonly used for 10G transmission.
