No. There's no NPU that I know of that can handle that amount of raw data - finding a CPU or some other processor to write that much per second would be difficult, if not impossible at the current time.
Best bet is a Terra RAM-San

You bet. Most (cheap) websites are capped under 10mbit. Something like overclock.net might have 100mbit, or 1gbit. Those huge
file download services like rapidshare are only on 10gbit.
Nobody has 40gbit.
This was just to prove they could do it, and do it cheap.
