    Which is better for gaming performance / latency etc? The Intel 1GbE (Intel® I211-AT Gb LAN)
    or Realtek 2.5 GbE?

    If I could get the 2.5 to work I'd let you know, might be a driver issue on my side.

    I did a speed test on both of mine for fun with a 10gb file. They almost didn’t differ at all. On a gigabit wired network.

    also what about cpu usage between the two? i'm also more interested in latency than raw bandwidth

    You should get the most out of your network by tuning, using qos and make sure your MTU/MRU sizing is good on your router (to prevent fragmentation and set small packet size optimal). I also set steam to grab the even cores since i multitask and have hyperthreading enabled. Disable Steam browser.

    This is for 6 core 12 thread,

    batch code:
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe /c start /affinity 555 F:\Games\Steam\Steam.exe -no-browser +open steam://open/minigameslist
