Sup720 has DFC3/PFC3 while the 6816 is DFC4/PFC4.  This alone makes them incompatible.

No, as the other posters have noted, but you could use the X6716-10G.  BTW this is compatible with the Sup2T if you upgrade the DFC to DFC4 (effectively making it a X6816-10G).  (NB: Most of the 68xx cards are really 67xx cards with the newer DFC4.  Most 67xx cards can be used with the Sup2t if using a CFC or upgraded to the DFC4.  [One exception is the 6708.])
