Will that be a Nexus 5K you have at home or what? eek.gif

I am not aware of any SOHO switches that will do 10Gbps...

And the network card on your home PC as well...

You sure have some cash to throw around... wink.gif

While they aren't cheap... Netgear has a few switches for the small/medium business market. 8 and 12 port switches are still in the $1,000 range.

I opted for high end 1Gbps switches and dual 4 port NICs for my servers and single 4 port NICs for my PCs. 8Gbps and 4Gbps connections are good enough for my home biggrin.gif

Still doesn't make sense for a home environment...

It doesn't stop at the switches and NICs and cables... you also need the the processor and system resources with enough grunt to deliver 10Gbps end to end...

All that for the sake of watching some 1080P movie... no way... I pass...

Hmmm, haven't really ever checked CPU % during a network transfer. I would think CPUs are already there, as is the sandy/ivy/haswell architecture in terms of memory utilization. The only area that should be bottlenecking (I think) is HDD storage. SSD over pcie is there, but HDDs are just barely above 1Gb network maximums. Until storage methods change (economically and speed-wise), I can't see it making any sense for my home use either.

CPU is not a limiting factor at all. I would love to have LAN and HDDs so fast that it would matter biggrin.gif
