 my understanding is that the 10 (12?) pins to that external chip are
sufficient to carry a leetle bit more than 480mb/sec, and if there's
an ethernet controller as well, that would tend to confirm that
hypothesis.  the datasheet will tell the full story, i'm a leetle
pushed for time, spent enough time on this already, so will leave it
up to someone else to do that.
