These are floating point instructions per second, since Bitcoin uses integers there could be some wiggle room? Huh

It was a cunning plan to have the funny man be the money fan of the punning clan.

I'm very curious to see the Cypto-Related uses of the computer.

It does not have enough RAM to use it for LTC mining (fully).

I thought about backing it for $200 to get the 64-core one, just for giggles, but there was no way they were going to hit the $3M stretch goal for that.

I was kinda hoping this project would succeed, but I didn't have any cash to send their way.

Side note: I find it funny that no one gives two shits about sending almost a million dollars to fund a startup company for computer hardware that could not be delivered for quite some time.  Wink

Can't wait for my 99$ board. Beside from learning I'll use it for data mining and 24/7 stochastics  Cheesy, might be way cheaper than a quad core vps.

Same, should be an easy co-processor to use since it has existing libraries in the SDK (and opencl support). Can't wait to see what sort of streaming encryption performance i can get out of my 99$ unit.

All things considered, coming with packages like that will be very useful, even if the board's specs aren't great.

The company's projected improvements through 2014 do begin look competitive with at least GPU performance and presumably resell is not an issue.

Kickstarter has some interesting policies.  You must remember that until the funding goal is reached, all those numbers are just pledges.  The total does not represent money in the bank.  If the project does not meet the funding target, no one loses any money, since they haven't spent a penny (they've only pledged funds to the organizers). 

If the project meets its funding goal, then the money is made available to the developers (less a percentage kept by Kickstarter).  Should the product fail to ship, then the investors lose their funds.  If the product ships, however late, the investors still get something for their trouble.

Same here, they could have had a lot more supporters if they could have done 64 core within a $1,500,000 budget. I wanted two at least.

It might actually be very good at that, even more so than other cryptographical uses.
