I'd like to see the BOM on this thing, Just to see just how much it's a genuine step up in terms of quality of components or a cynical marketing cash grab exercise, for those who don't have to ask 'how much?'
it's quite expensive I must say....
Not really, if you're dropping £1400-£2000 for a CPU... similar to an £80 'board & a £150/200 CPU.
If you don't need 2x Intel 10 Gb Lan don't pay for it and buy a "regular" TRX40 board instead?
well that's above and beyond my budget for sure....
It ticks just about every box I have that needs ticking. I agree with Hustler - I'd like to see a BOM for this. The 10GbE NICs aren't all that cheap, but they're not as wallet-busting as they used to be.
When the 64-core CPU variant comes out next year, I wonder if I can convince my boss...
Bill of Materials, which on nearly every piece of hardware is so small.
Is this only for having a passthrough connection off to another device, or can one board/machine utilise both inputs to be faster?
I've looked in the past and came up with something to do with port splitting or similar, but I wasn't any clearer.
Out of the box they are independent of each other, so you could for example run one connection to a switch and the other to a second pc.
But since both are from Intel, there is also the option of various ways for them to work together, here is an Intel tutorial on it:
Ah, nice one. Will check it out!
After reading that Intel article, I'm thinking dynamic link aggregation would be the way to increase online speed, but do many routers support that 802.3 standard? I was hoping to just shove two Ethernet cables into the router, set the team up and be done with it, but it surely can't be that simple (is it ever?)...
Not all that common, at least on consumer ones, gotta gate some features to justify enterprise pricing after all
