Yep, what I said with more details.Probably:
Also, this is a gigabit ethernet link? Then that graph's numbers are somewhat suspect, as theoretical max is 125 MB/s, real-world a bit less.
- Initially, all data goes into the receiving SSD's cache, which can ingest it very fast.
- Cache fills, performance takes a dive as now data has to be written directly to TLC NAND while the SSD simultaneously drains its cache.
- Cache space opens up some and begins accepting data, allowing the transfer to accelerate.
- GOTO 2.

I don't think this is over a gigabit link at all as the initial copy is much, much faster and exceeds gigabit bandwidth by a large margin.
Yep, extremely quick read to cpu/memory, then write to cache, then you are either cpu/memory limited, disk write limited, or bus (sata I/II/III, PCIe) limited.
