    Very cool!
    But mere mortals usually can only afford this kind of technology approximately 10 years after it has been introduced to the enterprise market.

      You’re telling me you don’t have one of their $1795 200GbE/IB HDR nics in your personal workstations?

          The ConnectX-6 Lx boards are already cheap.

            Actually, if you are willing to take the risk *, second hand 10GbE and 40GbE are quite cheap.
            Even 100GbE NICs can be found for ~500$.

            * If you look at my signature, all the equipment you see is old and mostly second hand, and in my experience server-grade products usually survive till the end of times... (My last second hand oVirt server worked, uninterrupted, for >10 years, until I decided to replace it...)
