Subject: [OMPI users] Slightly off topic: Ethernet and InfiniBand speed evolution
From: Robert Kubrick (robertkubrick_at_[hidden])

I am preparing a presentation where I will discuss commodity
interconnects and the evolution of Ethernet and Infiniband NICs. The
idea is to show the advance in network interfaces speed over time on
a chart. So far I have collected the following *approximative* data
for Ethernet:

1990 --> 100Mbits/s
2000 --> 1Gbits/s
2010 --> 10Gbits/s
2020 --> 100Gbits/s

I can't find a similar data set for Infiniband. I would appreciate
any comment/links.

Thank you! --Rob.
