ConnectX-6 Dx Ethernet Dual-Port 100GbE/Single-Port 200GbE SmartNIC IC

ConnectX-6® Dx IC is the newest, most advanced addition to the Mellanox ConnectX series of network adapters. ConnectX-6 Dx IC delivers two ports of 10/25/40/50/100Gb/s or a single-port of 200Gb/s Ethernet connectivity, paired with best-in-class hardware capabilities that accelerate and secure cloud and data-center workloads.

Network Virtualization
ConnectX-6 Dx’s groundbreaking ASAP² technology delivers innovative SR-IOV and VirtIO acceleration, offloading Open vSwitch data path forwarding from the host’s CPU to the adapter’s ASIC, and enabling extreme performance and scalability.

Enhanced Data Center Security
ConnectX-6 Dx brings security to every end-point, including:

  • Purpose-built inline acceleration engines that offload IPsec and TLS data-in-motion and XTS-AES data-at-rest cryptographic operations.
  • Stateful firewall solution acceleration, powered by Open vSwitch connection tracking and Mellanox’s ASAP2 technology.
  • Embedded hardware root-of-trust and support for RSA-based secure firmware update and secure boot, providing guaranteed integrity of the network adapter.
Best-in-Class RoCE Solutions
Mellanox ConnectX-6 Dx delivers several innovations including programmable congestion control and selective repeat and zero-touch RoCE, enabling scalable, robust and easy-to-deploy RoCE solutions.
