" It could be either.  The qec was quad qe (10-only), the qfe was a quad
" fe (I forget whether that's 100-only or 10/100).

" Yes, for IPC-era values of "real traffic".  Probably not today, in an
" age when anything less than gigabit is considered slow.

when i was at sun many many moons ago [early '90s], they were using
sparc-1s for routers.  i was told they could handle traffic at wire
speed on 10Mb ethernet.

iirc the qfe is 4 happy meals, so should be 10/100.
