So what's the deal with 10Gbase-T

Also, IBM G8364 (uses Broadcom Trident merchant silicon).

I believe the Force10 S4810 (also Broadcom Trident) is only SFP+?

Intel will force 10GBASE-T on all of us since they can make it backwards
compatible with 1000BASE-T.  I think this will make the technology take off
over the next year or so.

Been very happy running SFP+ twinax but sometimes I do wish I could go
further than 5/7/8.5 meters.
