Intel announced the Etnernet Controller X540, a new 10GBASE-T Controller:
Today, Intel announced the Intel® Ethernet Controller X540, the industry’s first fully integrated 10GBASE-T controller. This space-saving single-chip solution delivers outstanding performance for low-cost, low-power LAN on motherboard (LOM) and Converged Network Adapter (CNA) designs. The Intel Ethernet Controller X540 will help drive broader 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adoption by providing connections that are backward-compatible with existing Gigabit Ethernet networks. Like other Intel Ethernet 10 Gigabit products, the Intel Ethernet Controller X540 features advanced I/O virtualization, supports Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and takes advantage of platform I/O enhancements in the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family.

Still, AMD and other competitors are very much stirred up Intel. What is good for ordinary consumers. Last year, just teeming with new developments, and the actual finished product. I would say that a breakthrough time is now.
