Product Details
Mellanox ConnectX®-6 VPI Adapter
Dual-Port Adapter Card supporting 200Gb/s with Virtual Protocol Interconnect

ConnectX-Virtual Protocol Interconnect® (VPI) is a groundbreaking addition to the Mellanox ConnectX
series of industry-leading adapter cards. Providing up to two ports of 200Gb/s for InfiniBand and Ethernet
connectivity, sub-600ns latency and 215 million messages per second, ConnectX-6 VPI enables the
highest performance and most flexible solution aimed at meeting the continually growing demands of
data center applications.

In addition to all the existing innovative features of past versions, ConnectX-6 offers a number of
enhancements to further improve performance and scalability.

ConnectX-6 VPI supports up to HDR, HDR100, EDR, FDR, QDR, DDR and SDR InfiniBand speeds as well as up to 200, 100, 50, 40, 25, and 10Gb/s Ethernet speeds.

Mellanox Socket Direct®
Mellanox Socket Direct technology improves the performance of dualsocket servers in numerous ways, such as by enabling each of their CPUs to access the network through a dedicated PCIe interface. As the connection from each CPU to the network bypasses the QPI (UPI) and the second CPU, Socket Direct reduces latency and CPU utilization. Moreover, each CPU handles only its own traffic (and not that of the second CPU), thus optimizing CPU utilization even further.

Socket Direct also enables GPUDirect® RDMA for all CPU/GPU pairs by ensuring that GPUs are linked to the CPUs closest to the adapter card. Socket Direct enables Intel® DDIO optimization on both sockets by creating a direct connection between the sockets and the adapter card. Socket Direct technology is enabled by a main card housing the ConnectX-6 and an auxiliary PCIe card bringing in the remaining PCIe lanes. The ConnectX-6 Socket Direct card is installed into two PCIe x16 slots and connected using a 350mm long harness. The two PCIe x16 slots may also be connected to the same CPU. In this case the main advantage of the technology lies in delivering 200Gb/s to servers with PCIe Gen3-only support.
