Keep in mind that this is from the Forbes magazine - these guys have no clue
what a router is.
But the point is that something is coming out next week, and it gives me
kind of clue what...

I gather they will have 40G (full duplex chipset), have three of them on a
line card which will give them 120G of throughput???  Of course this will go
on MX...With no fabric redundancy. Only 10GE ports, no 100GE?? Will find out
