Nexus 5k enabling vPC reduce available vlan capacity by 50%?

When our sales engineers were here pitching the UCS and Nexus we were told that by enabling vPC on the Nexus we lose 50% of the available vlans. When we are only talking about 500 vlans that is pretty significant.  What is confusing us is that we cannot find anything in any Cisco documents to indicate that this is valid.  Perhaps we misunderstood, perhaps the sales engineer misspoke.  I was hoping someone on here could confirm or deny this statement.

Hi Dave,

I can't answer your question but maybe Lucien can. There exists an Ask the Expert conversation these days about Nexus 5000 and 2000 in this thread:

https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2046020?tstart=0

You can ask there about that and/or anything else that concerns you with those platforms.

Kind Regards,

Maria

That Maria, is a fantastic idea.  I attended his presentation in Cisco Live Virtual. I can't believe I didn't think of that myself.  Thank you!
