Interesting exercise, but note what he writes: "However, for many real-world use cases, the Pi's other subsystems (CPU and disk I/O especially, since I/O is on a single, shared USB 2.0 bus) will limit the available bandwidth.".

And another thing is the high standby energy consumption of Gigabit ethernet, watts per port.
But there are even people using pis as NAS servers, so I never get out of amazement.
