I'm looking for a Low cost FPGA with dual Gigabit Ethernet controller. Does 7-series have such chips? I have no preference on specific device so other series can also be considered.

Consider the xc7a200tfbg676-2 with TEMAC cores as Gigabit Ethernet controllers.
Artix-7 AC701 Evaluation Platform. Low-cost is a relative term.

Thank you balkris. Is there a reference indicating how many mac IP cores are available on the devices?

fiedel, Are you looking for two 1G or two 10G Ethernet controllers? Personally, I need to find the lowest cost FPGA for two 10G.

Zynq has Hard Gigabit Ethernet blocks(GEM).
The TEMAC core is a soft core which can be used in all other 7 series devices and PL part of Zynq.
The number of TEMAC cores is only restricted by number of resources available on the device selected and the pinouts as needed for your overall design requirements.

AC701 has only one Ethernet port?
Yes, the AC701 dev board has 1 eth port.
But there is also an FMC connector on-board. You can use that to connect multiple eth ports.
Use this connector - http://ethernetfmc.com/
