I google'd up this one:

http://vger.kernel.org/~davem/davem_tokyo08.pdf (slide 23+).

Does this mean that I can expect every 10G card to have this limitation
under Linux? Or are some known to be better than others?
(I can probably justify paying for another 10G card if I can expect to
gain the last 400MB/s).

Since I cannot push more than ~600MB/s through the NIC before a single
cpu is bottlenecked, it seem most likely to be this TX throughput
thing I hit.

Thanks
