That depends on what type and distribution of traffic is being firewalled, I've replaced Pix 535s in the Past with PF on FreeBSD with much obvious performance improvements all round.
However no software firewall I know of will handle 10gigE @ at high rate small packet level.

Is it currently both possible and reasonable to use pfSense in place of a 10-gig firewall (ASA, if you're wondering)?
What kind of hardware would I need to be looking at to achieve wire-speed forwarding?
