Yes, for the largest FPGAs.  In the mid-size range, it's not so much
the number of FPGA (BGA) pins, it's their spacing.  1.0 or 0.8mm
ball pitch is not a big deal with normal vias, but the ever-more-common
0.5mm balls are not possible.  For those you need microvias, a
particular configuration of blind vias.
