Not exactly just as good. It gets as good as FT when you get something like 200k or 300k VPPs, so it's only really nice for semi-pro grinders or better.
Also, when you're building a bankroll and moving up in stakes, the fact that you're getting the rakeback earlier than you would with FPP value makes a major difference as it allows you to move up stakes earlier.
