thegreathead: where would someone get this equipment and the software to run it?
Voodoo Hack: where can we buy parts :)
Vitaliy Kiktev: Добрый день.У меня есть пара вопросов. Свяжитесь со мной по скайпу whiteveilbrides
Andrew Boynton: I will pay you if you can help me get these and program them. how many hashes do you get?
Tycho343: Yes, FPGAs are good for such applications (not ANY general purpose calculations, but mostly integer/binary, related to cryptography).
You should note that designing for FPGA may be much more difficult that programming for GPUs, so it's useful when you need lower power consumption or higher scalability.
Tycho343: JTAG connection is available.
Andrew Boynton: how do you program the boards to mine though?
Radojica Radosevic: Get your dreamgirl to do everything for you on a live private webcam show for BTC link= is.gd\Yyr7eV
wavepattern: BUTTCOIN LOSES 77% IN 3 DAYS !!!!!!
GREAT "SAFE HAVEN"...hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
BUTTOCIN - BUBBLE/SCAM/PONZI...
Call it what you like - its a SCAM
YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED!!!
евгений бровкин: за сколько сделаешь подобную Штуковину?
Alias Mib: how manny bitcoin you have per day ? i make 0.0006 per day
(i have GT8600 1 gb ddr2)
i need bitcoin to buy nvidia cards .. please help me i dont have money ...
ALTElektrik: а музло то наш играет.... по нему и спалился...
sashadevet: круто. $ в день имеешь? и причём тут сиетема)
teknic111: I am very new to FPGA boards. Can these be used for other GPU intensive applications, such as Pyrit?
Tycho343: I only said it twice :)
It means that some FPGA mining products can be used for other purposes without unsoldering the chip. Icarus and Lancelot boards have LOTS of GPIO pins routed + lots of chip interconnection channels, so they can be used for many other FPGA projects or sold to someone.
CRAKIZGOOD: i keep seeing you using the words "reusable" when your talking about FPGA what do you mean exactly ?
Tycho343: No, it won't become mainstream BECAUSE of ASICs.
Mining is just a service task like transaction processing by Visa/MasterCard. You don't need to mine anything, just use bitcoins for payments. It's not a make-money-scheme, it's a currency. You aren't mining USD, right ? :)
Tycho343: I can recommend "Lancelot" boards. They are not available to general public yet, but it's the most reusable FPGA solution ATM.
Tycho343: Sorry, not interested in Ztex. Not so much time is left for FPGA mining, so I'd better go with reusable ones :)
Niko Punin: I'm selling ztex 1.15x boards 27BTC a piece
Craig McLeod: May I ask which is the best of model to use: there appear to be a number of them: I looked up the spartan 6 series and there are pages and pages of them with slightly varying specs.
I would like to setup 1000 of them.
CRAKIZGOOD: with ASIC approaching
it seems that bitcoin will become mainstream because of how cheap they will be
will difficulty the difficulty increase ?
btw how many bitcoins do u get per day ?
Tycho343: Yes, FPGAs use around 7-8 times less power than GPUs at same hashrate.
Tycho343: Same as everyone else - Xilinx Spartan6
CRAKIZGOOD: i have a question
ive seen some people have huge GPU bitcoin rigs everywhere which just uses ALOT of power
but these FPGA can do the same amount of work for about the same price/performance without using alot of power
sinnersaintx1: what model fpga are you using?
Mountshilol: question I know someone in the bitcoin economy is making money and we all know its not the miners bc minining be blamed for all sorts of hackings and pump and dump but then why are there some many exhange websites and whats funny they build programs to create better exchanges some with fees so doesn't anyone build a program to fix the hashing because this i cryptography 21 million what about being unlimitless and allowing the users to create there own business or pump and dump
Tycho343: Those are ready to use boards. You just plug them in and launch the software.
Tycho343: Sorry, but you can't if you have to ask.
You need a Spartan6 150 version chip with appropriate power supply, but it's BGA and very difficult to solder at home, almost impossible.
Tycho343: Added song info to the description.
orangedac: What's the song in the background?
Keith B: how can i make one ?
Mountshilol: I admit I am a not a hardware technical guy but I want to create a mining rig or by one that using the new fpgas not the old gpus how did you get yours up and running?
Mountshilol: So basically you don't have anything to sell?
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
