Why RB44Ge?

- Its 1/3rd the price of an Intel i350

- You can get more help from Mikrotik support

- It will display full stats in Winbox (packet size distribution)

I tried old RB44G and I have high CPU utilization on ethernet in profiler and packets drop.
I use HP ML350G5 with Xeon 4505 (Quad-2GHz) and it's much slower with this card then RB1100AH.
Is it because of virtualization (Proxmox) or because of ethernet card?
Any ideas?

Do you use this card with Mikrotik installed on hardware machine or in virtual machine like I do (proxmox)?

Do you plan to make a full-height mounting plate available for this card? Some of my customers have asked for it. Not everybody has a low profile computer.

Thanks,

Tom

The RB44Ge looks like its full height. I've never seen a half-height card that can fit 4 full RJ45 ports on its faceplate...

What's the final word on this? Is it full height bracket or not?
