Going to test some USB 3 gigabit ethernet adapters based on Realtek RTL8153 and Asix AX88179 chips

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/27

Later on, I might add a USB31000S in the mix, but I will do some initial testing with USB 3 gigabit ethernet adapters based on Realtek RTL8153 and Asix AX88179 chips.

Things I will focus on with my Retina MacBook Pro 2015 model are:

  • CPU usage
  • Throughput
  • Duration between reconnect on USB after suspend, and renewing the DHCP lease
  • Promiscuous mode capabilities

Some links for my references:

A first impression from the above links is that for Realtek chipset based devices, drivers are more readily included in operating systems, and these chipsets are better at VLAN handling.
