Last month at the Neal and Nelson & Associates benchmarking laboratory a series of test measured a sustained data rate of 6.5 gigabits per second from a single 2U form factor AMD Opteron server.

The test ran for 48 hours and a total of 1,000 terabits (1 petabit) of data was transferred between 96 FTP client machines and one FTP server. These data rates were achieved with the common IPV4 protocol and standard 1,500 byte packets. More info at AMDZone
