Please answer if you can.

1. I have 2 free M.2 slots on my mobo "Asus z270a prime" will both slots work?
2. How many GPUs can 1 device help? If you have 2 on a single mobo does it help with straight gains? or just help an additional x cards?
3. Im currently HiveOS and been using many Linux Distros, will this be supported in terms of a how to get it working on linux?
4. My current Setup i have 13 x RX 570 on a single Asus z270a prime with 2 free m.2 slots do you expect to see hash gains on all cards or just "x" amount? What would be your ideal setup in theory (if you can apply it to my setup  i.e run 1 in my setup or 2)? Even if the gains are low but the power draw is significantly reduced would it be reduced on all cards? All cards are at PCIE GEN2

I totally understand it all needs to be tested etc... In just trying to understand if 1-2 cards were implemented how do cards interact.... is there a finite limit in terms of number of cards etc.

Cheers

how can you have 13 cards on a single z270a ?

how can you have 13 cards on a single z270a ?

Can you use less than 4 ports on these? I mean lets say you just have 2-3 GPUs and want to use this PCIe raiser?

well he did say fpga's were stealth mining. in his interview

which means some people  made unreal money  from sept to December 2017

my gut tells me  if you don't have these already you are well behind the curve.

just like most mining gear you get it too late.

I would say  in all the years I have mined 2011 to 2018

I got gpus early for the 2016-2017 runup

and I got knc early for 2013 runup.

and that was it.

I have to think bitmain will have a lot of these running very soon.

I worked with pjs 16 card (1060) build in march of 2018  and he is launching a 16 fpga build for august it will do 224000 for monero7 using fpgas and only 2500 watts.

vegas do 2000  so his build will be like 112 vegas  cost 60k.

100 units up for sale.  my gut is this tech is too late for us

You have a good point! I believe that we, small "hobby" miners have no future. The only game left is to hope for good luck and buy the first batch of great ASIC. I think that even Mineority wants to monopolize the FPGA miner market

Actually the whole purpose of the acorn accelerators is to try to help out the small hobby miner with a few GPUs.  The FPGAs are available to anyone to purchase as well, without any minimum buy order required.

From my understandings each acorn will boost 4 gpu's 30Mh/s so two would gain you an additional 30Mh/s for a total of 60. This is for ETH and that's about it all I know if certain GPU's will gain more or less I guess we have to wait to find out. Who knows what other algo gains will be if any. But it at least looks like it will make the whole system more efficient.

I thought it was 30MH/s total regardless.   30MH/s per card up to four cards would be incredible.

I also believe that it is 30MHs total. Also, there will be no such increase for ethash (especially with GTX1080ti running with a "pill"). The savings are mostly for power, in such case. Can we please get an official clarification on this. I am mostly interested in ethash

Filled out the survey, I am waiting on all the details like everyone else. I think I would be on board for a few if I see some nice power saving numbers. The improved hash rate is gravy to me. Would love to see optimal setups for this thing.

Yes I currently have one in my gaming PC.  I use it to test OC's on new (for me) algorithms for stability without the risk of a whole rig going down unattended.  It has run 1, 2, 3 and 4 gpu's just fine.  I have been told in forums it works fine with the Linux mining OS's as long as your mobo bios is up to date and supports it.

Can you clarify the MH/s increase question?
That 30 MH/s figure is per GPU or per rig?  If it's the second, does it matter if there are 1, 2, 3 or four cards?

This question has been dodged many times, OP acting like Mayweather lol. Can you please straight up answer the question? No bs, thanks.

I agree. What concerns me is that we will get the ordering opened and full specs (including algos supported) all at the same time so there will be some pressure to make quick decisions

guys please read the drawfminer thread

it ended in a disaster.

be careful is all I have to say.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

my understanding is, he will release specs then give approx week before offering pre ordering to avoid this.
There is a huge discord on these but really no specs as far as I've seen.  He is way more active there

No it doesn't.  As someone else said: real face, real YouTube interview with his face, real office address, real project.  Dwarfminer sucked but there were warning signs.
