It's worth mentioning that this proj.sunet.se/LSR2 test was done using the previous generation of Intel 10Gb PCI-X NICs, the new ones were announced last week:

It uses the same controller ASIC, but is half the length and has XPAK optics.

Interesting stuff regarding the 82597EX 10Gb NIC controller chip and Linux:

Have a look at proj.sunet.se/LSR2.

2 $1500 mail_order PC's, 40 router hops, almost around half of
the earth.
