Charles2531: 3:35 Not if you're attempting something massive. Then you're limited by the
number of logic units.
Ken Olsen: There is no way those will ever mine at 21GHs!
Luciano Mazzeo: I'm working on application, I need balance to test it, you will rewarded

Borgar: the xilinx chip at 2:00 is a xc95108. a CPLD with 108 macrocells.
obsolete now according to datasheet.
Andraž Urevc: aaaaaa rgghhh don't touch the chips >.< You will ruin em
Roy van Kuik: Have you tried these in linux. Maybe they work out of the box in ubuntu???
activeproandrey: They are pretty cheap, get a development board, i am sure it will help you
to learn it, try this one: papilio.cc
activeproandrey: Yes, but it will be only operation-specific. These are FPGA's, not
TechsysOFFICIAL: i know they arent CPUs :p it would be so awesome to get one and prgram it
to help me with my calculations :)
activeproandrey: Read the author comments, you bastard. These are medical imaging cards, and
if you want to make a miner out of them you'd need to provide intensive
cooling, and fully reflash the FPGA's, which is a pretty tough job, not
having any open code for that.
Adam Risberg: Mining bitcoins now after the bubble has burst is to no use.
CarlsTechShed: FPGA stands for Field Programmable Gate Array. It's basically a card you
can re-program to perform pretty much any kind of application. You could
use it for Video, Audio, Encryption, Decryption, or pretty much anything
Chinoman10: I must be looking at the wrong places!! I can't find ANYTHING that can do 1
or more GH for less than 500€... I mean... I can't find anything that I can
buy and get it right now (in less than a month)... I could buy the 5GH
Jalapeno, but for what? To get it "as soon" as December? No thanks!
wavepattern: Martin anyone can dribble on with delusions That never qualifies as a real
answer YOU HAVE NOT ANSWERED MY QUESTIONS IN THE AFFIRMATIVE You have
outlined a multiple step program which ONLY works with very very very
isolated people. Incidentally the #1 exchange was closed down by govt when
THEY decided L-O-S-E-R
ValugaTheLord: Damn mate, I would love to have them cards in my hands to fiddle around
with em and would be real good tool to teach my self some assembly, you
lucky git for having them cards for that price.
Łukasz Lewicki: it is not the truth, it will not earn for itself in month because of mining
Kyle Herbig: Amazing find! On the drivers, if you can't find the drivers easily, I'm
sure that you can contact a programer who knows C++ and he can develop a
new driver for you. :)
TechsysOFFICIAL: do you actally mine with it?
romkyns: That looks _almost_ like an SMA connector, which are used a lot for RF
CarlsTechShed: Thanks Moldy Kock. Some people only think about what something can do,
rather than the technology and design that goes into making them. I have
been repairing PCs and PCBs since I was about 9 years old. Lakshmere on the
other hand probably would never have heard of FPGAs had it not been for
this video :-)
nutcrakerz: How would I be able to mine Litecoins with these cards?
dave harper: all i heard was, 'blah blah blah, i'm a dirty slut.' tl,dr
pokemontoxicrpg: Could i ask if they could really do 21Ghash/s why would some one sell them
for 99p ?
Zed The Hylian: You earn bitcoins and exchange them for money, all managed through the
bitcoin program. You're a freaking mental patient. Please go back to the
Voodoo Hack: Don't lie they are ~200$ each!
CarlsTechShed: I would much rather spend my money placing a bet that Butterfly Labs will
go bust before a single unit gets shipped. Anonymous payments means they
will take your money and run
takitakair: whats the name and model of the card??
Marian Gherca: md5 bruteforce!
Eduardo M: Let's suppose you have a kinda powerfull rig... I seen Smartshop, clothes
shops, etc... that accept bitcoins... You set it up and join a pool, etc...
in about a week (leave PC working during the night) you can get the money
for that desired shirt or whatever by half the price... At the end you
calculate how much electricity you wasted and you notice that it barely
covers half the price of the shirt's price... You profit, you can leave
mining after that. And u profited.
CarlsTechShed: I'm pretty sure that the Section 75 protection would only protect me if
PayPal went bust between transferring the money from the credit card to the
Paypal account, and paying for the item because the contract is with
PayPal, not the seller. Also, PayPal's user agreement states that you would
be in breech of their terms and conditions if you open a dispute with your
card company for a payment to them. PayPal are b*stards when it comes to
refunds for something which is not part of their policy.
Allan Cristhian Kath Kipfer: why would u sell it if u can earn money with btc?
Nike Arround: bit-miner(.)com

CarlsTechShed: Yes, this was the same auction. To be honest, I put about £40 on them just
as a curiosity purchase and the bid was in the mid-£20's one morning and I
was in IKEA that afternoon when I got an email to say I had won them so I
checked to see how much I had won them for.... 99p! I was amazed! I never
intended to "do" anything with them except maybe experiment with them if I
could find the drivers. I can't see why they couldn't be reconfigured.
After all, that's what FPGAs are designed for!
Tesfa Berhanu: part number?
Martin Rickard: Haha, the fact that i've actually answered your questions when you thought
that no one would be able to, you've just managed to epically fail Thanks
CarlsTechShed: To be perfectly honest, I know very little about BitCoin. I only knew these
had BitCoin potential when a friend mentioned he was buying an FPGA BitCoin
mining rig and I mentioned about these FPGA cards I had. He had a look at
them, checked the part numbers on the FPGAs and came back with a calculated
potential of 21 Ghash/s across all 16 FPGAs based on the number of gates
and the speed. Yes, these are rare cards. They were mainly used in lab
equipment and universities about 12 years ago.
RavenPrecept: There are problems with Bitcoin but those are not it. People who get into
Bitcoin will get others into it. I will accept payment in Bitcoin for
example and it's an easy thing to set up a wallet.
MinecraftMan7778: ... the things i read... painful.
CarlsTechShed: Actually, I've spent £4.00 on the card and already made £9.56 in AdSense
revenue from this video so it hasn't been for nothing ;-)
CryptoCoin Channel: They cannot mine at 21gh...that is the most ridiculous thing ive ever
heard. If they could they would sell for WAY more than 99p. You might get
21mh out of them.
DCNOS18: Um i think your stupid.
TheTrueCBaer: did you get it to run?
Uwot Meight: Where can i buy an fpga card, that i can actually use for mining?
lakshmere: They are useless dude except you are a genious programmer, which you are
not I guess when you have your friend to go and calculate the hashrate for
you. So congrats on spending 4 pounds for nothing and showing off.
MinecraftMan7778: eh... that is true. but that wasnt really want i meant.. just.. forget it
im sick of fighting on youtube. idk why im even replying to this. :|
GoogleisTyrant: Engineering friend of mine used to prgram these..said they went out of tech
about 5 years ago...guess not.
QuincytheDestroyer: Not trying to fight, i think bitcoin is fabulous but it still requires some
work, i know its beta.
