How do NICs from other brands stack up against intel?

I know that intel is the industry standard but I don’t always have that much spare money to buy intel NICs. How do these brands stack up against intel?

 

Primarily looking at 1GbE Nics

 

1. Realtek - cheap, Common on lower end motherboards these days

2. Broadcom - Super cheap second hand, often found in macs as well

3. Atheros - These are on some old Gigabyte motherboards and idk if they are good

4. Marvell - I have some old LGA775 motherboards that have these

5. Nvidia Nforce - I have a AM2 Board that has this

What kind of NIC are you looking for? 10Gb? There's pretty cheap used ones.

 

For enterprise use, there's Mellanox and Solarflare.
