    Ethernet Technology Consortium announces 800GbE standard

    In brief, the standard re-purposes two sets of the existing 400GbE logic with a few mods.

    Thats 80X faster than the fastest of my 3 ports on the mobo, and TBH that's pretty darn fast in my book, but of course in the grand perspective 10 gbit are like a joke.

    It's all very well doing these headline speeds, which have incredibly niche usage, but what about making it so 2.5Gbit or even 5Gbit are standard on 'higher end' consumer boards with the rest of the networking kit being easier to find and at reasonable prices.

    Aside from NAS, what advantages are there from going >1Gbit ethernet?

    Nice, I'd settle for the price of 10Gb stuff to come down enough for home use first, they can keep their 800gbe for now...

    PC network to network.... for things like render nodes, network distributed processing etc

    Fast ethernet uses buckets of power. 10GB will still be a few more process leaps before it fits in the home without cooling fans ... by which time WiFI 7/8 will mean it's not needed.
    If you need 10GB at home - look at used SFP+ kit - newer cards use 3-4W, no fans and the cables are long and cheap.
    2.5GbE will be high-end mainstream this year given it's in the latest Intel chipsets, could just do with a few cheap(er) switches for it.

    Not everyone wants wifi or can use it without having issues due to everyone else having it too.

    Personally I don't like onboard wifi, they've always given me issues on my desktops and my own setup has a wifi bridge in the network so that I only have one network adapter to configure for multiple pc's which are all wired together. The issue with faster speed wifi such as wifi 7/8 is you also need a faster connection to it and if you're not doing an internal card you'll not hit those faster speeds because of the bottleneck on the rest of the connection.

    Different people. No reason why industry should stop just because the consumer Ethernet market is utterly stagnant.

    A new product we are developing at work is going straight for 25GbE as 10GbE just won't cut it and 100GbE is too expensive. Really, at this point we should skip 10GbE and get the volume up on more recent standards.

    25GbE works for me, when can I get it built into my motherboard?

    The motherboard we are using has an ARM chip on it, so probably not that useful to you

    But on a PC motherboard? Yeah I wish

    Edit: And for the people wondering what the point of a standard like this is for them... telecoms cabinets and those super fast 5G hubs need ever increasing connection speeds unless you like fighting with your neighbours for contended bandwidth.
