99.999999% people are using those soap boxes called routerboards, hoping for and dreaming about 600Mbps+ wireless performance. That's the reality.

You would have hard time trying to find people on x86 platforms. Unfortunately there is not too much to rely on other people and I can't advice you, too, because I haven't come across the particular 10Gbit you mention. That leaves you basically the only possibility which becomes necessity : test it yourself. That's what I have been always doing and that's the only thing you can rely on.

Do you already have the card or you just planned to buy it ? If you have it, it is quicker to install Mikrotik latest version and try yourself than waiting two days for somebody to reply with as helpless contribution as I did right now.

It will work and you will get 10gigabit.

I would suggest you talk to HotLava. They use the same chipsets but have more options e.g. 4x10G ports on a single pci-e card.

Hello,

I consider to the statement of nz_monkey, the entire Tambora series from HotLava
is named to be compatible and fine working with MikroTik RouterOS since v5.x!

Tambora 120G6S / Tambora 64G6S / Tambora 80G4S / Tambora 64G4S
Kindly regards
