Epiphany cores
Seems like a Fpga based computer but anyone know if those chip can be used for mining?

Because its opensource

Architecture behind the chip

*Edit I wasn't really into the board itself but the core it uses?

i highly doubt it. i don't see the fascination with these tiny open source things like the arduino/raspberry pi. highly unoptimized.

fine for cute projects though.

It says it is 90 GFLOPS. According to a quick google search the 7970 has 3584 SP GFLOP/s, so it doesn't really compare. They are small and low power and relatively cheap - so you might be able to build a board with many of these chips. On the good side, it works with OpenCL - so it shouldn't be hard to port an OpenCL kernel to it.
