Mid-2011 iMacs - Jumbo frames
on Jun 8, 2011 at 3:23:08 pm

Hi all

Can anyone with direct experience confirm that the newest iMacs now support Jumbo frames? I've read comments on here that they do, and Apple says in the most current support doc:

"The Ethernet port supports the configuration of Ethernet frames larger than 1,500 MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)".

I'm aware previous models (when the Core Duos were still available) did not support this.

Many thanks.

Ben

We've testing this at Small Tree. The new iMacs do, in fact, support jumbo frames. Makes the iMac a much less expensive good option to a MacPro for FCP utilizing ethernet shared storage.

Ah - brilliant, if Small Tree say so, I know it must be true! Thanks Tim, you've saved me a load of worry about purchasing. Now, if only you guys were based in the UK...

Thanks again!
