We (DANTE) have enabled uRPF right across 90% of our border
interfaces and we have seen zero performance degradation. Many or our
access circuits are as high as 10G so i would say that you would have no
problem with 600Mbps.
I would recommend you investigate the different implementations
and understand the differences between strict, feasible path and loose as
to avoid and unexpected behavior though. ;o)
