Spirit: They are pretty cheap, get a development board, i am sure it will help you to learn it, try this one:
Aroop Roelofs: i know they arent CPUs :p it would be so awesome to get one and prgram it to help me with my calculations :)
Spirit: Yes, but it will be only operation-specific.
These are FPGA's, not processors, remember.
Spirit: 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.
Tobias Hoffmann: how can you canfigure an fpga for bitcoin mining? i mean is there any special programming machine for that or can everybody do that?
Simon Says Learn: 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.
Aroop Roelofs: do you actally mine with it?
Marko Marina: BTC & LTC generator ► litecoin.bugs3.com
Łukasz Lewicki: it is not the truth, it will not earn for itself in month because of mining difficulty change.
Tyler Walker: sadly theres ASIC chips for btc mining... which from what i've heard are heaps more efficient and faster.. BFL has an upcoming PCI-E based btc miner coming out soon called the 'monarch' that will mine at 600gh/s... sadly it costs nearly $5,000.. but you could easily make that money back in a month with a single card! :)
Tesfa Berhanu: part number?
UNOnumb: do you maked it work ?????
Video Studio: bit-miner(.)com
bob smith: More idiots commenting on things they do not understand.
10GH/s will earn you about $6usd a day......... after the new diff of 50 mill.......
The heady days of 'free money' are OVER.........
you want REAL deliverable kit.. go visit hardcoreforensics (dot) com
crabnebulamusic: The ModMiner runs 4 Spartan 6 chips and estimated at 840 Mh/s - 1Gh/s - Would be interesting to see what hash rate you can get however with correct drivers.
crabnebulamusic: Yeah i think current Xilinx Spartan 6 Chips is maybe based on your 21Gh/s calculation however even with 8 you would get sub 2Gh/s
Brendan Taylor: plug them in and then go to devid ...
or send them to me...
Aroop Roelofs: so actually... you CAN make a really fast sciencific computer with this?
