That was Fred's point.

The question as asked was meaningless. Yes a single Squid can reach
that speed, but probably only for a uncommon type of traffic.

... and with SMP support nowdays a "single Squid" is no longer a
single *process*. Which raises the throughput capacity by a factor of
up to 10 on that box.
