Is the internal bandwidth of a switch limited when it is in a stacked configuration?

e.g. 3x x670-48-g2 configured as a stack (v160), will the internal bandwidth of a switch then be limited to 320Gbps instead of 960Gbps.

This is what a supplier suggested. 

We use a lot of multicast (uncompressed) video streams (3,6Gbps) and would exceed this bandwidth within a single switch.

Hello Erwin, no, only the connection between the slots is the limiting factor but wih V320 stacking you have 80 Gbps between each slot.
The internal switching in each slot will still be the max as would it be a single switch.
