Broadcom - 384 Gbps speeds revealed

Remember my comments last month about SSL not being as secure as you might think?

Well Broadcom, which apparently has servers capable of decoding SSL data streams in real time, now has a 384 gigabit per second (Gbps) system on a single chip.

On a single chip.

Wow - that's fast. The firm's Strata XGS III Ethernet technology is what drives the chip, apparently. The press release from the firm claims that the speeds from the chip-based technology were previously only found on chassis-based systems.

What on earth do you need such speeds for? Why, decoding multiple SSL data streams in real time of course...
