I've made two purchases in the last 12 months of 24-port switches.
Two switches last April came in at ~ $4000 each.
16 switches last Sept came in at ~ $3300 each.
These were two different brands of switches, both based on the Mellanox
Infiniscale III (24 port crossbar) silicon.
Clearly YMMV on pricing.
