Is there a place I can check how much L3 entry does a given platform support? For example I would really love to have a wire speed L3 switch that can handle multiple full BGP table. Culumus seems perfect fit, except link to has nothing about entry limit , just a vague 2G DRAM , which seems a bit low.

The current route table entry scale is in the documentation link here. The numbers you'll find aren't going to support the full IPv4 BGP Internet table. You could (and we have customers that do) take advantage of something like the border6 BGP WAN Controller in combination with Cumulus to use meet that peering use case.
