Questions about HP Gigabit Network adapters

I know that HP-UX 11i 11.22 supports the following 1000BaseT network adapters:

A4929A, A6825A, A6794A, A8685A

What I want to know is what NIC Controllers (i.e. intel 82540, Broadcom..., etc) are used on these cards, and if the cards are eventually just relabeled Network adapters from intel, 3COM or any other manufacturer.

Re: Questions about HP Gigabit Network adapters

Hi Benjamin,

I'm curious as to why do you need to know these details? I can tell you the A4929A uses an Alteon/3Com ASIC, A6825/A8685A
and A6794A the Broadcom 5701 ASIC.

Hope that helped a little,

Re: Questions about HP Gigabit Network adapters

Hi Brian,

I have an old HP i2000 running HP-UX 11i 11.22 that I want to retrofit with an GBit NIC. Sadly the original HP NICs are even used much more expensive than the whole machine is worth, so I want to know what network controllers are exactly used on these cards, or maybe if some of these cards are just OEM'd intel/3COM/whatever NICs.
