Ideally, we would run the Netgear ProSAFE XS712T with all eight ports at 10GbE, but we're still building our test lab.

 

For our test today, we're using one of the 10GBase-T ports on a GIGABYTE GA-7PESH2 dual-processor board and a Supermicro X9SRH-7TF single-socket motherboard. Both have onboard 10GBase-T. The third system uses an Intel X520-SR2 PCIe card so we can test the SFP+ port on the Netgear ProSAFE XS708E.
