This is kind of off topic but I don't know of any other ML with such a level of hardware knowledge.
I am looking for dual port gigabit and 10 gigabit PCI-e NIC's that aren't made by intel but don't require silly binary drivers or what not (ie: the closest thing to free) What would be my best option?
I know raptor/tim uses broadcom netxtreme's on the TALOS 2, has anyone gotten a pci-e card version of these? and if so do they work well? (ie: high performance, low interrupts, at least 100MB/s)
I don't want to support futher intel anti-feature development and I am tired of ending up stuck with counterfeit intel NIC's which have even made it in to the non-grey market supply chain.
