Yes. As long as the image is

Yes. As long as the image is IP Services. 

High-Performance IP Routing
● Cisco Express Forwarding hardware routing architecture delivers extremely high-performance IP routing.
● Basic IP unicast routing protocols (static, Routing Information Protocol Version 1 [RIPv1], RIPv2 and RIPng) are supported for small-network routing applications.
● IPv6 routing (OSPFv6 and EIGRPv6) support in hardware for maximum performance. The IP Services License is required.
● Advanced IP unicast routing protocols (Open Shortest Path First [OSPF], Interior Gateway Routing Protocol [IGRP], Enhanced IGRP [EIGRP], Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 [BGPv4, IS-ISv4]) are supported for load balancing and constructing scalable LANs. The IP Services image is required.
● Policy-based routing (PBR) allows superior control by facilitating flow redirection regardless of the routing protocol configured. The IP Services image is required.
● HSRP provides dynamic load balancing and failover for routed links; up to 32 HSRP links supported per unit or stack.
● Inter-VLAN IP routing for full Layer 3 routing between 2 or more VLANs.
● Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) for IP multicast routing is supported, including PIM sparse mode (PIM-SM), PIM dense mode (PIM-DM), and PIM sparse-dense mode. The IP Services image is required.
• Routing is possible across the stack.
● 128 switch virtual interfaces (SVIs) are recommended. Maximum of 1000 are supported (depending on the number of routes and multicast entries). 468 routed ports are supported per stack.

thanks

thanks

Thank you. but I have to

Thank you. but I have to point out that Jon provided more accurate answer. What I meant that advanced feature set requires IP Services. Layer 3 capability is a platform specific. Thank you.

All L3 switches can do L3

All L3 switches can do L3 regardless of the feature set ie. your switch with IP Base can still do L3 it is just that with IP Services you get more features eg. full routing support, PBR etc.
