Well, guess what? That's because the 7600 is a 6509-NEB chassis. Take a 6509, fill it with the most expensive versions of DFC, MSFC, Supervisor, switch fabric cards etc., fill it all up with memory, and the only difference with an OSR-7609 is the faceplace. Compare the pictures at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat6000/6000hw/inst_aug/01over.htm#69700 and http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/core/cis7600/hardware/osrouter/osr_over.htm#69700 or for the plain 7609 http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/core/cis7600/hardware/cis_76xx/osr_over.htm#1068171 (the text leading up to this image leads to Figure 1-3, which is incorrect, btw) So, yes, Simon was very much correct - differences between 65xx and 76xx (for equal values of xx) are initial configuration and the paint job. -- Niels.
