Intel® QuickAssist Adapter 8960/8970

Hardware Acceleration for Data Center Security, Networking, Storage, and Communications Applications Intel® QuickAssist Adapter

Intel® QuickAssist Adapters 8960/8970 deliver turn-key standard PCI Express (PCIe) access to hardware acceleration for compute intensive applications.

  • Hardware acceleration performance is designed specifically to meet the thermal, power, and form factor requirements for data center servers.
  • Seamlessly support industry standard server deployments to comply with low-profile form factor constraints, passive thermal needs, and PCI Express 3.0 specifications.
  • One physical adapter supports several virtual data center applications using single root input/output virtualization (SR-IOV) technology.
  • Intel® QuickAssist Library provides an acceleration stack with a common interface for both application and accelerator function developers.
  • APIs and driver capabilities for standard operating systems provide flexibility to adapt to new applications.
Intel® QuickAssist Adapters, with virtualization support, software libraries, and APIs, offer a complete and versatile acceleration stack for compute-intensive markets.
