Another Aquantia 10Gbit firmware that would be of general interest to examine, would be the one included with a genuine Apple iMac Pro and also with certain "upgrade" models of the 2018 Mac Mini. Which, AFAIK, functions in both macOS (natively) & also with Windows + standard Aquantia Windows device drivers.
Latest Windows Aquantia driver released 26 FEB:
Aquantia AQtion (AQC1xx) Network Adapter Drivers Version 188.8.131.52 WHQL
I installed this AQC-107 Card (The Pro-Gaming one, not the regular one) and it works OOB. No need for Kernel patches/kexts in 10.14.3.
No need for firmware update or anything either.
Will post speed results once I install the 10GbE card in the Synology NAS.
I would have liked a 2Port 10GbE NIC, but didn’t want to go with Intel at this time.
I’m going to disable the onboard 5GbE NIC in the bios. It’s useless now.
