      Different uplinks [Portgroups to physical NICs] ?

          Not sure which part are you concerning about having different uplinks/portgroups


          However, If you have 4 Physical network adapters, you can split the North-South (External) and East-West to be on different uplinks.

          See the 4 pNICs design below taken from the design guide VMware® NSX-T Reference Design

          North-South are pinned to P1 & P2 while East-West are P3 & P4

          This way you can offer symmetric bandwidth north-south/east-west because you dedicate them
