Your objective is to make it go faster, right?  This might help.

If it does that's a datapoint indicating that the MAC is the bottleneck

*not* the bottleneck.

Anyway, I see Damien has also added some info to this thread.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
