CSC/4 was a 25MHz 68040/16M
CSC/3 was a 30MHz 68030/2M? or 4M? -- whatever it was, it
could only hold a very small BGP table :-)
CSC/2 was a 33MHz 68020
CSC/1 I have no idea
IGS was a 16MHz 68020
STS-10x was a 68010...:-)  You had to be careful not to flood it's
memory with too large a RIP table...

The 2000, 3000, 4000 were also 68030 and the 7000 a 68040.

And many people still have numerous 25xx's still in service, those
are 68030's too... (and the 2511 still makes a really good console
server :-)).

The real revolution for the AGS+ was the flash cards.  After requesting
IOS upgrades for half a dozen or more AGS+'s every month under
maintenance, Cisco sent us a stack of flash cards for free to stop us
requesting IOS updates.

That's the "definitely not compact" flash boards...
