Detailed Description

Overview

This release includes Base Drivers for Intel® Ethernet Network Connections.

Notes:

  • The Intel® PRO/1000 P Dual Port Server Adapter is supported by the e1000 driver, not the e1000e driver due to the 82546 part being used behind a PCI Express bridge.
  • Gigabit devices based on the Intel® Ethernet Controller X722 are supported by the i40e driver.
