Look at the specs; they use different controllers (from the same
family, so they may well work in the same PCB, but distinct in

To clarify, I'm looking at Intel's PBs (product briefs) here:

Look at the first line in the Features list on the first page, Both
PBs list the same "Intel 82572EI Gigabit Controller".

They also have different bus interfaces -- which
could be a sustantial speed advantage for the server version under
high load.

Again the PB clearly states both cards are PCI Express 1x... Just look
at the photo in the PB... The cards are identical!
