The max speed supported by serial interfaces depends on the type of physical termination. For example, EIA/TIA-232 will give you a maximum of 115200. Other physical layer standards such as v.35 can give you up to 2Mbps...

So it depends on what physical termination you have and also the distance that you wish to run the cable since the max speed achievable drops off as the distance increases.
