Avoid Realtek network cards

Avoid Realtek network cards as their technical support is simply none. We have RTL-8110SC/8169SC based NIC cards (built in) on quite a few test servers and the performance is quite low.

We have been trying to find the problem as it looks the driver or NIC card performance for Linux kernel. Realtek support department doesn’t reply to our emails. We have sent multiple emails and it’s been several weeks without a single response.

Stay away (my personal recommendation and opnion) and use Intel. You get what you pay!
