Yes, we tested the actual connection and got much better throughput

Different subnets for each NIC on both FreeNAS and windows
Going to 2 separate 10Gb Switches

I turned off block size reporting and reformatted the drive just in case.
I'm not seeing any difference in speed.
While I can write from windows to FreeNAS at about 9Gb/s (4.5Gb x 2 cards), Seq read maxes out at about 4Gb/s (2Gb x 2 cards)
It doesn't seem like a network issue, rather an internal issue with FreeNAS -> iSCSI.
BTW, I am testing this without a cache SSD. However, I am not concerned, since I got about 8x speed on the FreeNAS box itself
