Hi

You can stack up to 4 3850 and 8 2960x currently

The 3850 stack bandwidth is 480 and the 2960 is 80

For power consumption refer to each platforms data sheet

Currently, you can only stack UP TO four (4) 3850.  The next software release will allow up to nine (9).

For the 2960X/XR, you can stack UP TO (8) 2960X/XR to form a single stack.  If you have, at least, one 2960S, then you can only stack up to four (4).

Cisco will not allow anyone to buy a single 2960X/XR and potentially stack up to seven cheaper 2960S.

3850 IOS XE version 3.3.0SE now supports Nine-Member Stacks.  Same rules apply, all members must be running the same IOS and the same feature set.
