Oops. Yes, my units were a bit wrong there. 600Mbit/sec :)

I just ran some tests under XP and they were pitiful, although the tests 
weren't run on the same box. Something like 12Mbit/second TX and 50Mbit/second 
RX. XP doesn't seem to do large send offloads but that doesn't explain enough 
of the difference...
