NetXen 10GbE Support Windows and Linux

NetXen announced a firmware upgrade enabling its 10GbE Multifunction Network Adapters to support both Microsoft TCP Chimney Offload and Linux Sockets Acceleration.

The Microsoft TCP Chimney Offload architecture is a key performance driver for Windows Server 2003. It offloads TCP processing from the host CPU to NetXen's Intelligent NIC, enabling higher performance and greater CPU efficiency for processing network traffic. Linux Sockets Acceleration (LSA) delivers similar performance and efficiency benefits for Linux-based systems.
