Re: Unfair comparison
"Any idea what chipset is being used for the line card Wedge and what processor is powering those supervisors."
First of all, it is not a Cisco switch, so there are no supervisors. Each line card has a microserver, based on the Group Hug standard. The Group Hug standard is basically a pluggable single board PC. So normally, it would be a low-power Intel or AMD. But it could be ARM. Or something else, as Group Hug is a standard motherboard interface, so the switch is CPU agnostic. Typically, the microserver would run Linux with an OpenFlow service. The microserver's would be the closest equivalent to a supervisor.
Cisco cycles between including the fabric on the supervisor, or making the fabric a separate card (during the long life of the Catalyst 6500, Cisco tried both). The 6-pack has "dumb" fabric cards, that are under control of the microservers.
