How many requests per second does a load balancer support?

I'm working on an application that is going to need to scale, and I haven't done this before. One of the things I wanted to know what how many requests per second I could expect a single load balancer to support. I found this article Benchmarking Load Balancers in the Cloud which says that on average you can get about 5000 requests/sec through a load balancer.
