LeWiz Releases Speedy New TCP/IP Offload Engine

May 9, 2005
May 9, 2005 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Web hosting providers interested in speeding up thier networks may be interested in the latest innovation from fabless semiconductor company LeWiz Communications. The company announced today that the LeWiz TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) HBA received the highest Performance Efficiency Index (P.E.I.) measured using standard benchmarks under high TCP/IP load or varying data sizes.

TOE is an increasingly popular technology for increasing communication speed. When network speed becomes faster than computer processor speed an input/output (I/O) bottleneck is created. The TOE, which is incorporated into the network interface card (NIC) or the host bus adapter (HBA), works through this problem by offloading from the microprocessor and I/O systems.

"Over 5 years of development and tuning really pay off for LeWiz. Today, LeWiz's hardware-based architecture proves that it is the best solution on the market from performance to reliability. Yet, we can do it at a fraction of the power consumption of any other solution. Simply amazing!" said Chinh Le, LeWiz's CEO.

"At first, Synchromesh Computing was a bit skeptical about the very concept of using a separate processor to reduce the workload of the main CPU or CPU's in a PC or server machine," said Synchromesh Computing CEO Alan R. Weiss. "We found that indeed this works as designed. First, we proved the very value proposition of TCP/IP Offload Engines in general, and then we found that the LeWiz solution (LeWiz MAGIC 2020 TCP/IP Offload Engine) is superior to the Alacritech and Adaptec offload engines, and also superior to the Intel Gigabit Network Interface Card (NIC) and the Broadcom 10Base1000 NIC for the tests we performed. We have the certified data to back up these statements," he explained. "This young company really has the goods."

LeWiz will be showing its Magic2020(TM) HBA and other new products at the Linux World Conference Booth #561 in San Francisco, August 8-11, 2005.
