TCP performance limitations

Someone asked me today what are the performance limits on a TCP connection.
The situation he posited was on in which there are no intervening
IP routers, massive availability of underlying bandwidth, massive computing
resources in the hosts, and low noise. It was further posited that
the hosts could be using acknowledgement strategies highly tuned for
this specific situation.

How to make such an estimate is well outside my expertise. Can anyone
give me any pointers?
