	Not necessarily. FPGA's have become a sensible choice now. My RME studio  
soundcard uses a big FPGA.

	The performance in the test doesn't look that good, though, but don't  
forget it was run under windows. For instance they get 77s to copy the  
Firefox source tree on their Athlon 64/raptor ; my Duron / 7200rpm ide  
drive does it in 30 seconds, but not with windows of course.

	However it doesnt' use ECC so... That's a pity, because they could have  
implemented ECC in "software" inside the chip, and have the benefits of  
error correction with normal, cheap RAM.

	Well; wait and see...
