It might be true (and this is speculation as to what might have resulted
in the measurements reported by Van) that designing a high performance
controller and writing the drivers is a tougher job for the 82586
than for the Lance. However this is something you do just once, so
there is no excuse not to squeeze the most out of the chip's capabilities.
