Switches like this and the force10 2410 and the like are cut through so do sub micro second versus a 'regular' store and forward switch

Arista claims to have the fastest 1/10 Gig 24 and 48 port 1RU switch,
with a backplane capacity guaranteeing 10 Gig full duplex line rate per
port. 

Cisco's CEF is local only and functions to download the arp cache and
routing table into ASICs for hardware switching; but look at Cisco's
NSF/SSO for cases where adjacent devices are all defined in the same
packet forwarding state machine.
