AR7400 (ex-INT7400) 1Gbps PHY Rate says Monster

Monster cable has a CES press release claiming that the AR7400 chip, previously known as the INT7400, has a 1Gbps PHY rate. This is a bit suspect as the Atheros product page still does not list the AR7400. 

Fact checking Monster's CES press release shows a major lie saying AR7400 is the "world's fastest PowerLine Communication (PLC) product" and is "5X faster than all other PLC products currently on the market". Gigle's GGL541 has been on the market for over six months. 

Any case, it is great to see the competition in the HomePlug AV (aka IEEE 1901) market heating up and giving us all more and better chips to choose from.
