Does APCu make sense with php > 7?

In owncloud document I read:

'memcache.local' => '\OC\Memcache\APCu'

but Does it make sense with php > 7 ?

The recomendation is to use redis.

but you also can use APCu, why not?

Additional notes for Redis vs. APCu on Memory CachingĀ¶
APCu is faster at local caching than Redis. If you have enough memory, use APCu for memory caching and Redis for file locking. If you are low on memory, use Redis for both.
