Other OEMs can make their own designs that use Intel chips -- e.g. Silicom
makes a 6-port full height SFP card that combines a 4-port I350AM4 with a
2-port I350 AM2.

It's just that the further away you get from an Intel design, the less
support we'll be able to give you if something goes wrong. And buying a
card on ebay, and made by a relatively unknown OEM (to me at least) doesn't
help.
