aeh - mpps - mega packets per second - is really low.
and the gbps scale in figure 4 is wrong - factor 10 to high.

1gige linerate:		1,9mpps
10gige linerate:	19mpps

and intel is proud to achieve 1,6mpps at 2 10gige cards?
I have seen higher values at pc hardware - but still not compareable to 

Kind regards,
