Thanks in advance

Now what is the case for  WS-6908-10G-2TXL ? I searched the Internet but I
could not find any information about Local Switching of this card.
The only available information is Fabric Switch Capacity which is 80Gbps.

Thank you again

Short answer is yes and full duplex, functionally but you never want to hit
that mark IMO This document will help with most 6500 architecture questions:

Only the ports connected to the same asic can send traffic between each
other without using the fabric (i've tested this) that's where they get the
64gbps local switching (port pairs have 16g each, 2 port pairs on each fpga,
4 one each asic, 16g from each fpga to fabric asic so 32gbps per 'side', so
64 total even though only 40g to backplane fabric)
