Mixed stack X690/X590

I am working on a design to replace a BD 8806. Looking at what I need and have access too, (2) 690s and (1) 590 seemed like a good option. I ran that through the stacking tool and it still looked good.

What are your thoughts on this?

Do the numbers seem right?

I cannot do (3) 690s because some of the copper ports are 100m.

I cannot do (3) 590s because I need 52 SFP+ ports.

Do all slots still affect the tables, or is it now just master capable slots?

Thanks for the reply Stephen. You should take a guess at who I want to propose this for. Maybe email me your guess

All slots will still affect the table limit of the stack, but the x690 and x590 are very similar HW so there table sizes are the same. I think two x690s with a x590 is a good choice.
