That was the case with earlier 8029 and such cards (PCI Ne2K clones etc
- nothing to expect from them). By my testing, Realtek 8139C doesn't
take more cpu time than, say, Intel 100Mbps cards. There's still a
difference - the top bandwith with my computer was 92 MB/s with Intel
and 87 MB/s with Realtek.
