In the embedded space where the alternatives are SPI (20 Mbit/s), UART (8 Mbit/s) and I2C (400 kbit/s), 100 Mbit/s is fast. Interconnects like PCI, PCIe and USB2.0 consume too much power or require too many pins.

SPI (20 Mbit/s)

The fastest SPI chips I've seen are 70 Mbits, but it's true that most of them aren't quite that speedy. On the other hand, most SDIO cards aren't that fast either (and don't use 4bit parallel signaling) ... in fact, every SDIO card supports SPI.
