Back in the lab at Alteon in 1997 we ran sbus gigabit ethernet in  
Tatung Ultra 2 clones with two 333(?)Mhz CPUs. We were able to push  
800Mbits through them (fiber gigabit ethernet) OK. If we tweaked ttcp  
any further we'd hard-lock the machines.

An Ultra 1 should be able to handle about half that; at the time we  
didn't recommend putting gigabit ethernet cards in the Ultra 1-series  
although we knew it would work.
