Aerospike is comparable to memcache, but a bit slower because Aerospike does clustering work. On a single node system, it should be approximately the same. On a two (or more) node cluster it will be a bit slower for writes since it does 2 copy writes for every write.
So why use Aerospike? – The clustering gives you enormous capacity with almost the same throughput and latency of memcache.
