I am looking for the cheapest NIC that supports SR-IOV and is DPDK compatible.
Bandwidth 10 Gigabit would do, also 32 VFs per port are more than sufficient. I am willing to spend < 225$.

Dual port NIC looks fine. As I require around 48 VFs ( or single port with 64 VFs). The cheaper the better for now.

Any suggestions ?

Hi Abhishek. I'm not sure of availability of these where you are, but you can try look for Intel X540 or Intel 82599ES network adapters, even 2nd hand would suffice. 

E.g. Intel X540-T2 LAN Controller DP 2x 10GbE RJ-45 Cooper Copper converged Ethernet | eBay

Are you running a home virtual lab?

Thanks Ashraf, Looking into it. X540 shipping price is too high on ebay.

Yes, it's for home virtual lab.
