Is 100% Redis fast than GPU/FPGA cluster for HFT?

I am looking for any expert opinion in this field for potential high frequency trading use the performance of a FPGA vs 100% Redis. All according to something similar to this link:

IBM Accelerates Power8 Clusters With GPUs, FPGAs, And Flash

[11:58:45 AM] Bryan Downing: there is this
[11:58:52 AM] Bryan Downing: the closest i could find
[11:59:02 AM] Bryan Downing: fpga is complicated but redis is easy to setup and maintain
[11:59:18 AM] Bryan Downing: it is free to so i think the performance could be adequate for 100% redis

Question is: could this FPGA/GPU cluster faster if you choose to be 100% Redis? Or at least is there the potential?

Please let me know by getting in touch via my contact form lower right. Thanks

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
