Does this prove that High Performance GPU should be used over FPGA for ultra high frequency trading ak HFT?

High-Performance, Cost-Effective Real-Time Control and Data Processing Using GPUs – m11-092 – CTV

Uh unless, I am wrong I think GPU can only be used for backtesting not live trading due to the amount of time to move data from the CPU to the GPU in a live trading situation, Maybe things have changed over the last few years. As far as I know, FPGA is the best way to go if you are considering this.

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
