For what it's worth, philipma1957, that's also a good mobo for use with the FPGA.

As in the acorn2 stand alone?

Or some other FPGA?

If a different FPGA which one?

Seems good for 2x 1080ti, 2x acorn. But 2x acorn per 1080ti has further boosts in some algo like lyra2re2

IMO that is a terrible board for the price but I think that is kind of the rub with AMD;  You get a good processor for cheap, get raped on a subpar motherboard

Yep, but reserve judgement until you know how much an Acorn can accelerate multiple GPUs.
Don't forget the price & opportunity cost in your calculation. One Acorn costs the same as two 1050Ti's and will only boost some algos.

...and also, PCIe lanes (CPU) and mobo config might have an importance in the calcs as well. If you need to get more hardware to extract performance, it needs factoring in as well.

Testing performed on a system with one Acorn and one GPU.

* Gains from Acorn are based on preliminary data and may change prior to product shipment.

will do 750 at 158 watts  and I can boost four with the 215+


Before making any further assumptions and purchase decisions, one important information is missing:
How is SQRL-miner speed in comparison with respectable algo fastest miners? I assume increase factors are SQRL-mining hashrates with or without Acorn(s).

This is exactly a critical question needed to be answered. I am also concerned about various pools access, including NiceHash

There's also a chart with two CLE-215+ and one gpu.


heh  I looked at the charts  and these acorns do huge boosts to 1050ti's  very impressive. even better for rx 560's


1050ti.....2.64x   +45%.....53%   1.97x   +18%   26%     the hash rate jumps  from 100 to 264 and power jumps 45%



1060.......2.11x   +15%.....93%   1.89x   +18%   39%
1070.......1.71x   +10%.....100%   1.92x   +7%     52%
1070ti......1.60x   +9%.......93%   1.82x   +7%     61%
1080........1.56x +8%......100%   1.74x   +8%     61%
1080ti......1.39x   +7%.......100%   1.76x   +5%    88%
RX550......2.64x+45%.....100%   2.31x   +50%   12%

RX560.....3.35x+20%......96%   2.49x   +32%   24%  the hash rate jumps from 100 to 335 and power jumps 20%

RX570   2.08x+12%.....100%   2.51x   +9%     42%
RX580   1.85x+8%.......100%   2.60x   +6%     61%
Vega 56   1.44x+5%.......100%   2.55x   +5%    94%
Vega 64   1.36X+5%.......100%   2.36x   +4%    100%


THREAD-RIPPER 1950X   

Testing performed on a system with one Acorn and one GPU.

* Gains from Acorn are based on preliminary data and may change prior to product shipment.


As I read this with a 1050ti 53% of the acorn 215+ is used  so a 215+ will cover 2 1050ti's  at pretty much full strength

As I said already in my previous post, you really need two CLE-215+ for higher end cards and that it will cost $660 (the cost of GTX1080Ti - the prices of which will drop soon). It is not that profitable to mine with Lyra2Rev2 these days. In other words, I do not see big advantages for GTX1080Ti (or even GTX1070Ti). Let's wait for ethash numbers. I personally am not interested in newer, often obscure algorithms for mining.
Why would you need two of those? For me, I have 2 GTX 1080 Ti, 1 is not enough?
And another question, im using a m.2 as a maindrive so I dont have any slot left. Would this work? https://www.reichelt.de/adapter-usb-3-1-m-2-sata-mit-gehaeuse-delock-42570-p164002.html?PROVID=2788&gclid=Cj0KCQjw-JvaBRDGARIsAFjqkkpT7foY34vGTqYxoMjDAF0dysxef5O3oE7e-bD5ghK12USJPJRvkm0aAo-EEALw_wcB&

Here are the numbers for Dual CLE-215+
1080ti   1.94x   +13%   100%   1.76x   +8%   88%

You need two to double the hash rate of GTX1080Ti (unless I am wrong). This would cost $660 + all the hassles with setup and a new mining software (unknown abilities). Can anyone correct me?

This is an error on my part.




This is super exciting.

What gets me is that I will need an Acorn for everyone of my 1060's I have in my rig? I have 2 X 12 of them.
I might get the 215+ and run it as a "FPGA" mining on its own.

Would like to see numbers on equihash etc.
Would like to make those Z9's dumpsterworthy


To go from 100% to 189%. On a 1060 39% of a 215+ would be used

So 3 1060s May jump from 100% to 170%

And 2 1060s would get the boost from 100% to 189%



I read charts wrong

You are focusing on low end GPUs (I understand that). Many small miners do not want to have big rigs, therefore they (we) use mostly high end cards (possibly only GTX1080Ti - for flexibility). How do you judge usefulnes of Acorn for those GPUs, please?

The bold is for the ?  LYrA2rev2 Algorythm. So adding 2 x 215+ Increases hash from 100% to 194% and increases the power used from 100% to 113%

The non bold is x16r

2 acorns jump from 100% to 176% hash and power 100 to 108%

Squirrels are releases numbers Smiley .. http://www.squirrelsresearch.com/acorn-cle-215-plus/

There are results for one Acron and one GPU.
Will be nice too see comparision table for one/two acrons and more GPUs.


Need to study more on these charts

It says the 215+ can mine alone on a m2 slot.

No stats but I have a lot of mobos with m2 slots.

Maybe a dozen .  This maybe a good option for some.

Maybe a dozen .  This maybe a good option for some.
Or maybe we should wait for more charts and a really good explanation of GPUHoarder.

Can anyone post me a great external m.2 adapter to connect the acorn?

Why would you need two of those? For me, I have 2 GTX 1080 Ti, 1 is not enough?
And another question, im using a m.2 as a maindrive so I dont have any slot left. Would this work? https://www.reichelt.de/adapter-usb-3-1-m-2-sata-mit-gehaeuse-delock-42570-p164002.html?PROVID=2788&gclid=Cj0KCQjw-JvaBRDGARIsAFjqkkpT7foY34vGTqYxoMjDAF0dysxef5O3oE7e-bD5ghK12USJPJRvkm0aAo-EEALw_wcB&

That adapter won't support the Acorn. The slots in it are B key, the Acorn is M key.

Edit: The ASUS Hyper does, if you can find one.

The ASUS Hyper can fit up to 4x m.2 right?

Squirrels are releases numbers Smiley .. http://www.squirrelsresearch.com/acorn-cle-215-plus/

There are results for one Acron and one GPU.
Will be nice too see comparision table for one/two acrons and more GPUs.


Need to study more on these charts

I am not sure though what the compatibility with older motherboards is.
I see the following for board compatibility:

ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME
ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX
ROG STRIX X299-XE GAMING
ROG STRIX X299-E GAMING
PRIME X299-DELUXE
PRIME X299-A
TUF X299 MARK 1
TUF X299 MARK 2

Oh... and if anyone is looking to expand on this and include more testers I would recommend Vosk Coin.  

Please, no. Guy is annoying af. Just my opinion!

Well, I would but I need my review sample back as we only have 1-2 spare.

In Vosk's last video he mentions mineority disappointing him by selling FPGAs instead of working on ProgPOW. Then he's complaining about reduced Nvidia profit due to the Z9 mini and bitmain being evil, and how 'people' only care about profit, yet he's bought two Z9's and another ASIC on the way? If he's not going to set a decent example, he's just a hypocrite. I don't hate the guy, I just think he could do a lot better if his reviews were more focused on the technology and less about how much money he can make. Let him and his subscribers buy their ASICs and leave the FPGAs for people that can tell the difference between a scam and a deal at this early stage. If you have a review sample please send it to Seth or someone else that actually made some FPGA videos recently.


what load of rubbish, you make no sense at all.
Vosk does a YT channel that looks at all aspects of mining, so how the hell can anyone gave worthwhile opinion on ASICs but not actually have and use any??
He has stated many times that his preference is for GPU mining and so ProgPOW would be more important to him, its just a point of view.
You advocate groups should stick exclusively to one tech or another? FPGAs or ASICs, like fanboys? Really?
Which 'people' only care about profits? your statement is not clear, Bitmain certainly are evil and have carried out their business with total disregard for anything other than their own bank balance. The thing is mining is supposed to be incentivised by profit, why do put that down as a bad thing?
Think harder before post anything, you currently have no credibility.
 

Thank you for the kind words and support. People like you are why I stick around Cheesy

KJS sent that to me for a one month test run and demo it was a very nice piece of gear.
He fully trusted me with the gear and when demo was done along with the thread I shipped it back to him on my dime. but kept a month of mining profits.

It is a bit too much to ask him for the 60k rig to do the same thing.

but I know that ethos software and KJS and ohgoditsagirl and gpuhoarder all have said they have had working relationships and they do not speak badly of each other.

I know KJS sent me a 6k machine to test run and trusted me and I was good to him and did what I was supposed to do.

So I feel this gear is real  and I am mostly bitching that they missed deadlines and I do not know what to do  with my coin/cash/gear ratios mostly due to this delay.

If I am 25k in cash 10k in coin and 20k in gear do I just wait and wait and wait.  or do I sell more gear or do I want to change my mobos buy more  ryzen 2700x and x470 boards.

At the moment I was hoping to just keep my 1080ti's and use acorn2 for a boost
I did not want to move into fpga's

Thanks philipma1957.

I will be able to send you a BLACKBOX system for review, but without GPU's or FGPA's installed.

The BCU1525 FGPA's have not shipped yet so its impossible to ship a fully loaded one even if we could.

having it with 1 or 2 bcu1525 and an acorn2 would be a good way to show what it can do.

or having it with an acorn2 and some of my 1080ti's would also by a good way to demo it


lastly is a mixed system possible  say 1 or 2   BCU1525 FGPA's  an acorn2 and  a few 1080ti's

this last one would appeal to a lot of miners like myself with some  gpus on hand and boosting the setup with an acorn2 and a fpga or 2.

For many  your 16 fpga + acorn2 = too much $$$

but a combination  of 1080ti + acorn2 + BCU1525 FGPA is possible and attractive

I think this is the kind of transparent collaboration that a lot of people have been looking for.  This is the kind of thing that will push a lot of people past the speculative barrier.  Well done and thank you!

Of course, looking forward to actual follow through and results.  And I would be more interested in use cases illustrating GPU enhancements (1070, 1080, 1080ti here) as opposed to the somewhat limitedly accessible BCUXXXX FPGA.

Oh... and if anyone is looking to expand on this and include more testers I would recommend Vosk Coin. 

Grendel25 thanks for recommending me to have the privilege to review something, seriously. I appreciate it.

Anyone who believes this guy's reviews are sincere are pretty naive. There's a pretty stark difference between the Vosk on youtube and the one in real life. Anyone who knows him knows that he'll promote anything and even screw over his friends so long as he gets paid. Ask Vosk about overcharging honest people for dog shit hardware. As if that wasn't bad enough, he also embeds malware in miners that he resells honest people so that he can hijack their networks. This guy will get exposed soon (TM).

I have a spare MOBO with M2 slot. Once this accelerator is available I can test with AMD cards. I will get some 560 or use existing 570/580 cards. I don't have GTX cards though

lol okay, let's not derail this thread with any more comments and strange accusations about "this guy". I mean, I don't think any youtube reviewer deserves an unsolicited review sample. When they say "do your own research" 3 times in every video, they should take their own advice and pre-order the thing themselves if it looks interesting. I especially hate how they all call themselves noobs to relate to the audience, yet somehow they have offices and/or basements full of so much mining hardware it makes the pros jealous. If you want an acorn, order it on Friday, or you might be waiting a long time. Don't wait for the professional noob reviews.

For the Acorn accelerator, would the 480/470 class cards be interchangeable with their 580/570 counterparts?
