    Hi Forum

    I was wondering if somebody could link to a benchmark of Apples TB->Ethernet adapter. Or maybe somebody could do some tests. I'm interested how the adapter compares to built-in Ethernetports in file copy speeds (small and large junks) and latency.

    Would be great if somebody could help because I'm considering a MBPR but absolutely need the Gigabitspeed to access my NAS.

    arstechnica did a mini review of this adapter.

    Thanks, havn't found this one yet. 70% CPU usage when doing file copy via Finder sounds awful. I hope to see other benchmarks with comparisons to built-in ports to see if it's really that bad.

    EDIT: found another one but doesn't reveal too much: http://www.insanely-great.com/news.php?id=12416
