Difference between hp nc553i dual port flexfabric and 10 gb and HP NC326M PCIE Dual port Adapter ?

I have a blade c7000 and  bl 460c g7 and I have i/o module 1 and 2  pass throughs  to integrated converged network adaptors on my blades which are hp nc553i dual port flexfabric 10 gb,  and then I have i have nic  mezzanine cards on my blades which are Broadcom HP NC326M PCIE Dual port Adapter which are also pass throughs. Whats the difference between the two kinds. So nic 1 and 2 on my blade is  hp nc553i dual port flexfabric 10 gb and nic 3 and 4 are broadcom HP NC326M PCIE Dual port Adapter which comes from the mezzanine card. I don't clearly understand if one  is better then the other. Previously in our older  chassis we had everything as broadcom. I guess i need to know what the new hp nc553i dual port flexfabric 10 gb and are they better or not as good  as broadcoms. We use pass throughs for everything on our chassis and that includes our storage.
