So I'm curious: is it possible to create bitcoin mininig software based on cheap and energy-efficient Sigma 863x-865x chipsets? These SoCs are used in set-top-boxes and media players like WD TV to play HD video.

How fast do they calculate hashes? Anything Float based is useless for Bitcoin and I suspect these to be quite Float heavy in their usual calculations.
