What an effort to write such a long wall of text. The problem is that it really doesn't mean much and is probably just a bunch of incoherent babble about fake hashrates. Just take a look at all the comments on this thread, all newbies who are seemingly bumping this post the ground.

How important is pcie 3.0 4x bandwidth for this FPGA? Because I use 8 gpu riserless Onda mobos; the only way it'll connect is via m2 key host boards on Pcie 1x lanes.

i have an onda B250 D8P v1, and you can set the link width for slot 0. in the bios i just set PEG 0:1:0  (which is the 1st slot near CPU) to  x4 link,  and gpuz confirms a x4 link to the card. its under Max Link Width which is default AUTO which leaves it at x1. can be set to x1, x2 and x4. so we can use a x4 pcie->m2 adapter in slot 0 at full efficiency.

so i will definitely take one of these for my rig.

BTW did the survey.

You clearly didn’t read the blob of text.

Let me see if I’ve got this right... this device helps GPUs get a higher hashrate, but only works for GPUs in a PCIe slot and not on risers?

Not asking for performance numbers, but what algos are you targeting?

Risers are fine but less gain. All algorithms in general can run on it, it is as flexible as a GPU as far as programming, but of course not all are profitable and FPGAs have different strengths.

Sorry that’s vague, if I specify one algorithm as good profit but don’t post all the info suddenly people are parroting the information incorrectly and people get confused. I’m not taking anyone’s money so patience is the name of the game. Most of the algorithm details are in the first post anyway.

Detailed performance numbers by configuration, GPU, and part are coming - it’s a lot of testing and people are already confused without adding partial information to the mix.

I will take some.

I will offer assistance to op at no charge.

If op needs a pre order run I will do it at no fees for me.

I no longer do escrow but for this project I offer free escrow other then the tx fee.

At op do we need intel CPUs ?

Are higher end CPUs better?

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

Thank you for the response.  I did the survey on your site, but some questions I didn’t know how to answer because I don’t know enough about the product yet.

I was asking about the algos because it seems a lot of FPGA talk is about what I call “off the wall” algos, and while some are profitable, the coins they support don’t interest me.  I’m looking for something for the Big 3... Ethash, Equihash and CN variants.

I am interested in trying one to start with, same boat as others w/ Onda b250s tho good to know slot 0 can be set to 4x. Also curious about CPUs, I'm just G4400s mostly.

I have a lot of good cpus.  Would be nice if this tech likes them.

Can you clarify what you’re offering?

Higher end CPUs can be interesting, but system memory matters more if you’re trying to use the accelerator with CPU***

Quick question:  do you have to have an accelerator for each GPU, or will 1 work with all GPUs in the rig?

I will watch with interest for more info. Survey completed.

A question, I have mostly Nvidia cards, but can AMD RX480 cards also benefit?

Higher end CPUs can be interesting, but system memory matters more if you’re trying to use the accelerator with FPGA.

win10 1709, 8 gb ram, 120 gb msata, g4400 cpu. hoping that would suffice for now.

ive always meant to toss the 6400t i have in my htpc into the onda at some point. perfect excuse to upgrade the htpc cpu Smiley

Highly interested and ready for some tests (I'd pay in advance). Survey answered.

System is
Win 10 X64 with the bad 1803 build, that sooner or later will be the standard.
750W 80+ platinum PSU.
Mobo X470: with 5 PCI-E (3 X16), 2x M2 slots (one "reinforced"), lots of USB 3.0/3.1 ports, 6 SATA ports.
Ryzen 5 2400G
8GB RAM, no issue to ad 8 more.
SSD 240GB
3X RX570s ETH bios mod

Mid to Late June for all orders and information. First batch ship a few weeks after.
