[Beowulf] Aquantia 1-2-5-10Gb nics?

has anyone tried these new, commodity-priced NICs?
I tried to run down some performance stats, but didn't find anything.

the question, in my book, would be whether they could deliver decently
low latency (running MPI, Linux, open-source drivers on a commodity switch).
in other words, 10Gb switch prices have been falling, but the NIC market
seems stubbornly stuck in enterprise price-insensitive-land.

thanks, mark hahn
