What's the difference between auto negotiate (Hardware) and auto negotiate (Software)?

Hello,

 

I have a Brocade 300 SAN switch.It has three auto negotiation modes,auto-sensing mode(hardware),auto-sensing mode(hardware) with enhanced retries and auto-sensing mode (software) with enhanced retries.

What's the difference between them?

 

thanks
