Hi,
take intel

Thank you for the quick reply, I also want to move over another site to Vyos, have a Supermicro server on that site, I was looking at adding the NIC card below, I see it has a Intel Controller, I was wondering if I would get the same benefit as a Intel NIC card.

Should be ok.
Make sure that you use 1.2 series, not sure if 1.1.x will boot on newer supermicros/dells
You can keep virtual any version, but it’s mostly depends on your requirements
