Without knowing the specifics of all the hardware involved, and what processing will be done on the packets / connection, there's no way to even guess.  Sorry about that.

NSX platform provides 20Gbps of firewall throughput and supports over 80k connections per second per host. See additional details: https://blogs.vmware.com/networkvirtualization/files/2014/06/VMware-SDDC-Micro-Segmentation-White-Paper.pdf
