We have done some tests recently on E5 3.7Ghz systems (ie, top-end-ish server systems)
that can push 800+Mbps UDP, but can't recall if that is upload or download.

We need to re-run tests and publish the info.

Looks like host CPU is very important to higher-speeds with ath10k.  I did a perf top
months ago, and there was bad contention on a spinlock or two in ath10k driver, so that
is probably much of the performance problems we see.
