iMac Pro and Mac Pro come with a built-in 10Gb Nbase-T Ethernet port, and iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2020) and Mac mini (2018) offer 10Gb Ethernet as an optional configuration. This port supports 1Gb, 2.5Gb, 5Gb, and 10Gb Ethernet using RJ-45 connectors and standard twisted-pair copper cabling up to 100 meters (328 feet) in length.

When you connect your Mac to another device via Ethernet, the highest possible speed is negotiated automatically. The speed depends on the capabilities of the device and the Ethernet cable. For example, if the device that you connect to is 10 Gbps-capable — and the cable you use can support the speed — your Mac and the device can transfer data at 10 Gbps.
