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)
