Router Routing / Forwarding speed - is it anyhow related to packet size?

By Vladio ·
Hello everyone,

my colleague and I were in a discussion yesterday over wether :
-Routing speed is the same as forwarding speed and
-wether m6348, a dell ethernet blade switch - forwarding rate up to 160 Mpps would perform differently with small, or jumbo frames. I believe this would apply to any switch / router for immediate purposes.
Does anybody have some experience with this?
Every input is welcome, thanks.
