why would it try to max it out?
pretty much all high speed traffic is TCP unless something like a DOS attack.
TCP self regulates and it starts from 0 not from 622mbit/sec it ramps up using slowstart,
eg. if I start to download a iso image, it doesnt immediatly try to send it all at once at some insane high speed, it ramps the speed up from just 576bytes/sec to the sustainable speed, the name slowstart is a bit misleading in that it all happens very quickly but its a ramp up process not ramp down.
