Best gigabit network interfaces

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I've measured good performance with Intel E1000 and Marvell 88E8xxx parts using jumbo packets in gigE LANs. While reviewing MOBOs I see that a very high fraction now use Realtek 8111 or 8168/8169 family parts. There seem to be driver issues and perhaps performance issues with the Realtek parts,but it's difficult to say without some testing. Are the Realtek's any good ? Anyone measure performance ? Any other parts that you know work well/poorly ? -S (HowTos)
