PIX 535 Performance ?

When compare Netscreen Firewall vs. Cisco Firewall PIX 535, The Netscreen Company said that:

"While the PIX 535 does support gigabit firewall performance, this does not hold up under normal traffic activity. With just a few thousand sessions active on the PIX 535, the performance drops to less than 700 Mbps, and performance degrades significantly as the number of sessions is increased beyond that, this performance throughput is decreased even more when the number of policies is increased".

It is true or fault ?

What do you think about this statement?

I'm sure the Netscreen folks have their opinion. For a more objective opinion, you should probably read the latest issue of Network Computing. The PIX 535 won hands down and

cost considerably less than Netscreen.

I run a PIX 535, I haven't experienced any performance problems and the last issue of network computing has a large article on testing of firewalls. The PIX 535 came out head and shoulders above the rest.
