Perhaps you are thinking of the 75xx?  I believe the GSR has a 40 Gbps
backplane with something like 5 Gbps per slot.  More than enough to support
a gig-E card at full line rate in each of the slots on the 12008.  Of
course, whether the CPU, etc. can actually push that much - well, I dunno.
Anyone tried it?
