2.5Gbe is available and it's a lot cheaper than 5/10 Gbe too.

QNAP do a cheap 5-port 2.5Gbe switch and their newer NAS come with 2.5Gbe ports too.

2.5Gbe is closer to the max disk throughput from SSDs/RAID.

For example the SSDs from my VM host can now back up at 2.1 Gbps from NVME to SSD-tiered NAS volumes via the 2.5Gbe switch which is as fast as I am going to get.
