I was just wondering about this. A top-end graphics card in 2000 could probably do 5-15 MH/s, and now one can do 600. So I'm guessing 2024 or so, maybe sooner.

Could a top end graphics card from 2000 even do 0.1 Mh/s? Even good cards from a few years back are doing 20 Mh/s.

Might be a bad comparison, but Xbox came out in 2001, you don't think that could do 1 or 2?

edit:

On second thought, I don't think it could.

If bitcoin is successful, there will be special hash processors before GPUs reach that mark.

There are crypto cards already, they are just expensive because they are sold in small numbers only. (Nobody needed them at home, but large encrypted websites do.)
