The best kit is Intel. The processor and controller is optimized to deliver line rate. See the test results here: https://fast.dpdk.org/doc/perf/DPDK_18_02_Intel_NIC_performance_report.pdfwell when will we know is the big question...... also want to know what CPE & Router they will use
If someone subscribes to a 10Gbps service and expects to get that from their R400 Tenda router, they deserve to be slapped.Most people have can barely get 200Mbps out of their fibre lines because they're too cheap to buy decent networking equipment and have no idea how to optimise their WIFI network. 10Gbps is going to create an even bigger problem.
Pretty sure it's able to go higher, have had bursts to 32MBps at times.For the time being, I see no reason a home user would actually need 1Gbps, let alone 10Gbps. 200Mbps, as it is, is perfect since at least that speed is usable in most places for the home user. Steam tops out at around 25MB/s download speed.
A transfer rate of 25MB/s is plenty.
Higher speeds are necessary in fringe cases, but then you're probably better off with a business line.
There are anatomical limitations at which our eyes can perceive things. The average person in the average household won't even be able to tell the difference between 4k and 8k on a 50" TV.Every time there is new high tier product released into the consumer space there are always people who bring up the "nobody needs this" argument.
Guess what, there were people who said that about 2Mbps lines once. Things progress, it's the natural order of things and if didn't happen then we'd still happily be watching MacGyver on our CRTs and hitting the BBS with our 56K modems.
Nobody needs 4K TVs.
