    ​Hi,

    I am looking to find the difference of NSX-T with or without GENEVE Offload and RxFilter, and Enhanced Data Path feature.Though its performance based and difficult to measure, but looking at what degree the differences are 20% or 50% or ?%.

    Selected network cards support the features. So, wondering what it means to customer.

    If someone using it, that will be great to know. Otherwise, looking for expertise view.

    Regards,
    Subbu

    ​I did myself some re-search and found a good blog and a technical article explaining Enhanced Data Path in detail. Helpful.
