Do any Checkpoint appliances offer SSL offload?

I understand that Check Point is a software company.  But, since they sell their software on their own dedicated appliances, I was wondering if any of the appliances can do https encryption/decryption offload to a separate card/chip/asic so the CoreXL CPUs don't have to handle that burden?  I know other vendors that require ssl inspection have these types of asics to reduce CPU processing burden.  Just wondering if Checkpoint does this on any appliance models or is considering this?

 

I'd rather have CoreXL working hard at inspecting traffic and let something else worry about the encrypt/decrypt.
