As the growth of Ethernet speed surpassed the growth of microprocessor performance. TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) technology has emerged and aimed at not only releasing servers and communication systems from burdened conventional TCP/IP stack but improving the network utilization rate. To lower the risk in developing TOE, one may rely on certain platform containing a single or plurality of embedded microprocessor(s). However, one may find that it is not easy to use such slow-clocked microprocessor(s) to achieve the high speed goal.
