    most ISP's do not provide beyond 1000mbit yet, so why the worry about 2500mbit?

    It is more about home/home-office networking. Mid range NAS appliances now sport 2.5Gb ethernet as standard and can often be upgraded to 10Gb. Restricting a 3000+ ukp PC to 1Gb is (as Hexus rightly point out) a weakness, and will be more so in a year or two.

    I'm just building a similar tier PC for someone, and even a decidedly mid-range Asrock matx board (their choice) packed 2.5G ethernet. That was admitedly Intel side, but I checked out AMD recently too for my own use, and 2.5G was pretty common, esp on B550. X570 is a touch older so it does seem slightly less common on that, to be fair, but google showed a number of keenly priced models.

    It still is very limited use to a private person, especially if not using CAT7 cables and the likes, especially if you are not running a full SSD on the homeserver to be able to benefit from the speed proper.

    Would rather see the full leap of 10gbit instead.

    And people love WiFi... I mean it is not the most stable solution still in the world, likewise exposing the home and self to additional radiowaves.
