Can someone explain to me why the frame buffers are different between 5100 and 5300? The datasheets state the following:
5100 - 2048 dynamically allocated, 1692 maximum per port
5300 - 1460 dynamically allocated, 268 maximum per port
Thank you in advance.

Due a ASIC restriction.
5100 Based Condor2 ASIC
5300 ( and Brocade 300 ) Based GoldenEye2 ASIC
Condor2 ASIC's ( same ASIC is used in DCX ) is powerfull as the GoldenEye2 ASIC's
