Subject: questions regarding hardware acceleration which could be used for password recovery

Hello, I would like to ask what is your opinion which type of devices you would choose as accelerator:
Passware company offer support for Tableau Tacc accelerator for password rate acceleration, Elcomsoft offer support for Pico computing FPGA.
In my previous experiences I have used only GPUS. one NVidia geforce (while cracking WPA PSK it helped me to speed up the password recovery by 15x in comparison to  intel corei7 2.8ghz processor, and before that I have tested on my old PC the old ati radeon HD6850 against intel QX9550 where the GPU provided 20x times better performance than CPU).
So final question: which technology would you prefer? GPU or FPGA Pico or Tableau TACC?
Thanx for opinions and advices.
Johny Krekan
