Here is an outstanding discussion of why near wide speeds are not possible:

http://www.tcpipguide.com/free/t_TheoreticalandRealWorldThroughputandFactorsAffecti-2.htm

Just the fact that this page claims disks would have a hard time filling a 100MBit/s network should
make you react. Whatever the author meant at the time is since long gone. Doing zerocopy
tcp at 9x0MBit/s was done on sub-300MHz machine in the late 90's. Thinking it would be impossible
today is completely bogus.
