    10Gb/s data over gigabit Ethernet port

    Hello,

    I have a simple question. I have a Gigabit Ethernet port in my PC/system. Can i use it as 10 Gb/s port just by updating the MAC drivers ?

    No. MAC and PHY must be designed for 10 Gbps.

    10GBASE-T (10 GBPS ethernet over RJ45 cables) hardware is yet expensive. Unlikely to be found in a garden-variety PC.
