Apple TV 3 - Poor Ethernet Performance

To try and improve streaming performance, I turned off WiFi on my Mac and connected my Mac straight to my Apple TV by ethernet. Works fine, however the streaming performance is just the same as WiFi.

Videos still buffer for the same duration, and worst of all, photos don't load instantly.

Is this just a limitation of streaming? I'd have expected far better performance from being wired versus wireless.
