No, I think it is not the same. The GenWQE PCIe card is not a
multi-processor card. One cannot run software on it.

Our GenWQE card can be configured by updating it with different
bitstreams to perform different purposes. The service logic to perform
such updates stays of course the same and the work-queue too. But the
request one can put onto this work-queue can be of different nature.
Currently we can do things like compression, decompression, calculate a
CRC, copy data ...
