I have an extra pre-release TCP offload engine card that I am dying to
try out with the 1.4 linux server release. I haven't gotten much time in
with it, but so far they seem to kick some serious ass. Your entire TCP
stack is in silico and it flies! If you need to squeeze more cycles out
of your servers, instead of worrying about stuff like multi-threading
you may want to check out one of these cards when they are released.
Thing is... they give them to me for free and haven't told me how much
they are charging for them. I'm in research so I expect them to cost an
arm and a leg. Hopefully they won't be too bad.
