Nexus 5K Layer 3

I am buying a Nexus 5K (N5K-C5548UP-FA) with the layer 3 card (N55-D160L3 - Nexus 5548 Layer 3 - Daughter Card).

The switching capacity of it is 960 Gbps but I know I should expect less doing the Layer 3 function  (it will only be used with static routing).

What switching/routing capacity should I expect? How can I estimate it? What else should I consider?

Thanks!!

The layer-3 forwarding capacity is 160Gbps with 240,000,000 mpps for all 48 ports witch is equal to 5000,000 mpps per port.
