FPGA & Hardware Accelerated Trading


HFTReview is running a four part series on FPGA & Hardware Accelerated Trading.  Worth a read.  For me GPU’s are still king for a majority of cases since good developers can get access to the technology easily (buy a GPU card) and leverage familiar IDE’s and tooling.  I think Mike O’Hara’s comment below provides a hint of the challenges around developing an FPGA solution.  However, I do see FPGA’s as being the right technical solution for certain business problem.
