Here is what I have seen (and what I can tell you), using the upcoming
Myrinet LanaiX board:

* Plumas chipset (Intel E7500), PCI-X at 133 MHz:
DMA Read = 825 MB/s
DMA Write =  850 MB/s

* ServerWorks (GrandChampion), PCI-X at 133 MHz:
DMA Read = 860 MB/s
DMA Write = 1024 MB/s

* Alpha Ev7 (Marvel, what a nice machine), PCI-X at 133 MHz:
DMA Read = 908 MB/s
DMA Write = 1038 MB/s


They are all pretty good so far.

Greg, please do not put them on your list right now, the benchmark code
is not finalized yet.

Patrick
