in theory yes, in reality we have with Samba up to 700 Mbit which is OK

i decided for most servers that lowered latency benefits more than 
throughput because the throughput is well enough while the behavior over 
slow links like VPN on a mobile-device as uplink becomes much better, 
not only for samba - for http the same
