Mellanox ConnectX-4 Adapter, 100Gb IB Interconnect Solution

Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. announced the ConnectX-4 single/dual-port 100Gb/s Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI) adapter, the final piece to a complete end-to-end 100Gb IB interconnect solution.


Doubling the throughput of the previous generation, the adapter delivers the consistent, high-performance and low latency required for HPC, cloud, Web 2.0 and enterprise applications to process and fulfill requests in real-time.

ConnectX-4 VPI adapter delivers 10, 20, 25, 40, 50, 56 and 100Gb/s throughput supporting both the IB and the Ethernet standard protocols, and the flexibility to connect any CPU architecture - x86, GPU, POWER, ARM (News - Alert), FPGA and more. With performance at 150 million messages per second, latency of 0.7μs, and smart acceleration engines such as RDMA, GPUDirect and SR-IOV, ConnectX-4 will enable efficient compute and storage platforms.

ConnectX-4 adapters provide enterprises with a scalable and fast solution for cloud, Web 2.0, HPC and storage applications. It supports the RoCE v2 (RDMA) specification, the variety of overlay networks technologies - NVGRE (Network Virtualization using GRE), VXLAN (Virtual Extensible LAN), GENEVE (Generic Network Virtualization Encapsulation), and MPLS (Multi-Protocol abel Switching), and storage offloads such as T10-DIF and RAID offload, and more.


ConnectX-4 adapters will begin sampling with select customers in Q1 2015. With ConnectX-4, Mellanox will offer a end-to-end 100Gb IB solution, including the EDR 100Gb Switch-IB IB switch and LinkX 100Gb copper and fiber cables. For Ethernet-based data centers,,ConnectX-4 provides the link speed options of 10, 25, 40, 50 and 100Gb/s. Supporting these speeds, it offers a copper and fiber cable options. Leveraging Mellanox network adapters, cables and switches, users can ensure reliability, applications performance, and high ROI.
