Music&Me: The two chips are CPLDs, a quite restricted performance and capabilities FPGA in simple terms.The device at 2:08 is a CPLD propably dedicated for the JTAG interface, from which you can get things like monitoring some of the system performance signals etc.
RandomGameplayer: thats a pice of bitcoin mining histoy
loamall: Can I use FPGA devices to recover passwords (using brute force method)? If yes, which device to choose, and what software to use?
mitropoulosilias: FPGA Mining and bitcoins mining is about for some people to sell that kind of cards!!!
Ken Olsen: There is no way those will ever mine at 21GHs!
Borgar: the xilinx chip at 2:00 is a xc95108. a CPLD with 108 macrocells. obsolete now according to datasheet.
Charles2531:3:35 Not if you're attempting something massive. Then you're limited by the number of logic units.
Anddosdd: 20 GH are you sure
Luciano Mazzeo: I'm working on application, I need balance to test it, you will rewarded when is online, please subscribe to keep in touch and donate.

Andraž Urevc: aaaaaa rgghhh don't touch the chips >.< You will ruin em
Petr Bouzek: I switched from mining myself to cloud mining. You can buy mining equipment instantly and the earnings are applied to your account https://cex.io/r/1/Donter/0/
Roy van Kuik: Have you tried these in linux. Maybe they work out of the box in ubuntu???
Spirit: They are pretty cheap, get a development board, i am sure it will help you to learn it, try this one:
FinlayDaG33k Gaming: 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.
