There are much stronger dsps than a sound card

This twitter guy has pretty ridiculous tweets, and people claiming him a fraud etc. Also he's claimed to be trolling  Cheesy

EMU20K1 estimated processing power is placed at 10,000 MIPS

A radeon 4850 (quickest thing I found with my googlefu) is estimated at about 500,000 MIPS. For a sense of what this means, a 4850 gets about 85MHash/sec according to the hardware comparison wiki. So 85 / 50 would lead one to expect about 1.7Mhash/sec if one managed to make a soundcard hash.

I think price per unit, and joules per hash/s would be more important factors than the hashrate itself.

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

Heh, given how short the battery lasts anyway you probably wouldn't even notice the additional power consumption...

Neolod is a famous troll among the Bitcoin community.  He once intentionally "procured" a cluster belonging to his employer, just so he could drive up the difficulty and pull out, to 'prove' his theory that bitcoin would crash.  It didn't.  Take anything he has to say about bitcoin with a pound of salt.  He's probably bitcoin wealthy despite himself, if he didn't delete his wallet.dat file.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

How so? THe $/Mhash ratio for a good 5xxx card is around 2.4. To compete with that you'd need to find a sound card that costs $4.08 at 1.7MHash/sec. I suppose if you somehow found a $5 soundcard with that much power, you could win out with low power costs by stuffing these into empty spots not taken by video cards, but I'm not sure that the hassle of stringing all those possibilities together is worth it for the 7 cents a day you would make.

Would PCI expansion cards make the energy saving of  mining with soundcards pointless? Or is there no such a thing as a way to use more PCI cards in a machine than the mobo got slots?

the majority of a GPU isnt anything to do with cuda/open cl if it was a dedicated cuda/opencl card it would be alot smaller.

there is no way a soundcard could ever pull those numbers thouhh next people will be claiming they are getting 1gh/s from a bioschip on there motherboard or a network interface card  Roll Eyes

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Re-read the post, I don't think you got it judging by your seriousness.

Edit: Nevermind, read your other posts from today, looks like you're just PMSing.

Well, i known it its just BS, but the EMU10K1, EMU10K2, EMU10K2.5, EMU20K1 and EMU20K2 are actually programable processors.

While it might be possible to mine on them, i dont think someone its going to be able to, i mean there is 0 documentation about.

And if where posible remember that is not posible on Windows Vista/7 as it does not allow for a direct control over the chip (Remember how Windows 7 killed Hardware EAX support),

Do the math, if a x16 lane gpu generates 300 mh/s ( based off an average mining gpu), a sound card whether on-board or plugging into a pci, pci-e x1 lane, or even pci-e x4 lane is not going to do f*ck all, excuse my language. Sound cards are probably 1/100th the times as powerful as a gpu respectively considering release dates/drivers.

I have worked with computers for many, many years and I will confirm that this is false. This is just an outrageous claim.

Help Bitcoins by buying clothes, technology, books, etc. through people/stores that accept BTC. This will increase overall value of BTC as well as mitigate unnecessary bank transaction fees.

The size of a card has zero to do with how effective it is. Most modern graphics cards are filled with RAM chips that are useless for mining & make the board longer.
