Maximum Transfer Rate


I have the following scenario:

I have a computer connected to a Switch3750G and another computer connected to another Switch3750G. Theses switches are connected through a Optical Fiber link in the uplinks of the boths Switchs 3750. The computers are connected in the access ports, this ports works at 1Gbps. My question is

Which is the maximum transfer rate that should reach between these two computers.


Note: the user A is in the VLAN_A, and the user B is member of the VLAN_B.

In theory, if you were just transferring data between just those two hosts, you should be able to transfer at gig.

If you had other data activity on those switches, which didn't even compete for uplink bandwidth, the 3750G fabric and/or Mpps doesn't guarantee wire-rate.  (Compare fabric and Mpps speces between 3750G vs. 3750E/X.)
