I know that FlexRoute provides Internet scale routing support for Arista products having it. And AlgoMatch is a feature substitute TCAMs by dedicated algorithms and general-purpose memory.
I want to know that Should each product, which has  FlexRoute engine, deploy AlgoMatch? I mean that for example for new products with newer merchant silicons which have large internal databases and maybe there is no need for external TCAM like Jericho II silicon, Is AlgoMatch a must? Could AlgoMatch be used in merchant silicon internal databases?

Algomatch is limited to the manner in which ACLs are processed and you can choose to use the Algomatch method or TCAM.

Since Algomatch is related to ACLs, flexroute and routing in general are orthogonal to your choice and is certainly not required to be used.
