    yay finally, the future is a bit sad though, by the time 10gbe becomes standard, most laptops will probably lack any form of native ethernet port

    jeez 10 Gbit Ethernet, lucky to have 80megs dl here in the UK. The only lines here faster are Business packages or if you are lucky Virgin is available in the area you live.

    I don't really understand the benefit of such fast internet when SSD's/HDD's only write data @ around 500mb/s.

    UK Gov are promising 2 billion pound on updating internet infrastructure but again what does that even mean since whom do you even give that money to? BT? I have no idea how that will work.

    sata ssd can do about 500megaBYTEs/s and hdd do around 120, 120 is already a bit more than your gigabit lan can handle

    this 10gbe port could handle twice the speed of the average sata ssd, but only half of what an NVME one can do, that'd be good enough for me, its been like forever stuck in 1gigabit ports

    Don't get me wrong i'm all for new technologies but for me personally it'd be like having PCIe 4.0 at additional cost while PCIe 2.0 would give same result in performance with a single card.

    Hopefully 10gbe doesn't cost anything extra over 1gbe because it's paying for something you can never use. (atleast in UK right now)

    Except 90% of the time you aren't getting those speeds because it's random data.
    I've had a gigabit connection 2 years ago (actually I'm now waiting for a gigabit connection again, I've been moving a lot) and I can tell you this: a hard-drive is pure crap at handling gigabit transfers. My Spinpoint F3 would spend most of its time around the 40MB/s segment with occasional (read: pretty damn rare) spikes towards 70MB/s.

    My old Corsair Force 3 SSD couldn't keep it together above 90MB/s (it rarely touched this figure) and my Kingston Fury Savage hovered between 100-110MB/s which is approaching the bandwidth cap. The thing is, it did NOT feel like there's a lot of headroom left as most other external operations would slow the download down, albeit not as significantly as in a HDD's case - low access time is good for this.

    Don't assume that SSDs can hold gigabit transfers like it's nothing because it's not true. SSDs are subject to horrendous marketing and those 500MB/s you hear of are achievable in the best possible conditions.
    A regular SSD is _just enough_ for a gigabit connection.
