[P4-dev] General question on P4

Hi,

P4 allows for configurable data-plane, e.g., we can easily support new
custom protocols. However, the same functionality may be achieved by using
a network processor, e.g., EZchip (the one I had experience with).

As I understand, the advantages of programmable ASIC/FPGA that supports P4
is better performance and a lower price than a network processor?

What do you think?

Thanks!
Michael.
