Which 10Gbe NIC to use (with SFP+) ? Tags: NIC Cable Components Last response: April 2, 2013 5:50 AM in Components Share DavidA2013 April 2, 2013 4:47:48 AM Hi I need to build a test environment to communicate with a hardware device that has a 10Gbe comms port and that uses a SFP+ connector. So I need a 10Gbe NIC for a Windows/Linux PC, and that NIC should have a SFP+ connector. Would anyone like to recommend a suitable NIC please? The cable length will only be a few metres. Should I use fiber or copper? As I will not be using a switch (due to the high cost of 10Gbe switches) I guess I need to use a crossover cable. Is this possible with SFP+ compatible cables?
