Awesome work GPUHoarder, I'm down for two of the high speed boards (CLE-215+ 1GB DRAM version).  Are you accepting crypto or fiat only?  Thanks!

Survey Completed.

Trying to guess Which would be the better setup:

I currently have 2: 1060SC GPU's (I want to stick with this GPU) with room for one more on my board (Don't want to use risers).  If I add 1: CLE-215+ 1GB DRAM version to my M2 port, would it better to eventually:

Add one more 1060SC GPU or ad a PCI E card that could hold 2  more CLE-215+ 1GB DRAM's for solo mining or to further support the 2 1060sc's?

Don't know if you can GPU mine and solo mine with Acorns at the same time?

Right now mining ETC with GPUs and Kryptonite Heavy on the CPU

Current setup:
AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, ASUS ROG STRIX X370-F 2x 1060sc 16GB DDR4 3200

Kinda new to mining, Thanks!

Survey is completed. How does this work with mining software. For example will we still use Claymore or XMRStak etc?

Survey completed- and syndicated on YouTube  Cheesy

Hey thanks. Love to help more miners!

This uses our mining software (because of the very different way it works), but we will be publishing the interfaces to allow others to use it if they see fit.

Thanks to OhGodAGirl I found this thread, now I have some ques to ask, Kristy mentioned that this FPGA will be reducing the load from GPU for GPU demanding Keccak and others part (NonFP ) which most known algorithm uses - ETH/Equi/(ProgPOW if it becomes reality). That means if this can do say Keccak part at 15W then the GPU Power usage will drop significantly - as mentioned by Kristy again. So can you confirm in details? Also your in-house test say for a OC'ed RX580 how much power can you save?

I can understand that exact values are not possible at this point of time, but can you share estimated % on say a RX580? If I buy.... the power part will be the main driver and will help me decide. Would appreciate if you can share some info on this.

The 3 models are present I can understand - what's the diff between using all these three - if you don't talk about the speed then how they differ? Only Diff between these 3 I read was on memory side, how well they will perform from each other?

completed the survey.  A lot of unanswered questions so please a video or diagram would be great.  I realize due to hardware that everyone will have different hash rates and variables.

Perhaps you can build a FAQ from the questions asked and put them on the 1st page announcement to help others. 

So I'll ask about my specific motherboard on my rig, the Asus Prime Z270-A https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/PRIME-Z270-A/
 -- it has 3 x PCIe 3.0 (GEN3)  SLI & 3-way  CFX Support
 -- even if I could put 3 GPUs in all 3 slots my guess is the first slot is the only one that will get full acceleration--the other two won't be as fast but would they be faster than 1x risers?
 -- so I get one of the M2 accelerator cards, put it in, put a 1080ti in slot 1 and fire up your mining software and then the rig will be hashing quicker.
 -- any benefit to filling the other two GPU slots on this motherboard or would they be the same as risers?

I don't need exact numbers, I'm just trying to figure out how this board would help with acceleration versus a mobo that has 2 x16 slots (if there's a critter).

Thanks!

You will continue to use 1x risers for the GPUs.
There will be special miner software that does the offloading to the accelerator.

will this software work with my current mining programs?  Can I continue to run claymore, enemy, etc... or do I have to run GPUH or whoever else develops a FPGA accelerator mining software?

Im highly interested in this due to price and its current use.  But like mentioned before, a bunch of unanswered questions.  I know it takes time, but Im trying to make sure any future purchases will work with this and not be going backwards.

Hello David,

Thumbs up for the efforst and ingenuity. Survey is done. I aslo have a lot of questions. The order quantity depends on the results and the limitations of the Acorns. I will wait untill you publish the preliminary results so I can narrow my questions.

I have ordered one of the FPGAs from fpga.lan .and I was just thinking if the Acorn will influence/benefit also the FPGA. I'm almost sure what the answer will be but with my limited experience a second opinion will be good.

Can't wait to see the first test and result. Keep up the good work Smiley

This looks like a really promising middle ground between GPU and FPGA mining. I'd say it's a serious win if it manages to work out proerly.

Lots of things are changing in the mining world! This looks pretty promising! I deff want to try one on a rig or two!

GPU,
Can you explain the difference between your Accelerator and an EVO 970?  You guys are evolving the mining world to the next phase.
thanks

The difference is one is a hard drive and the other is an FPGA accelerator that happens to fit into the same slot.

You speak of 30 MH of increase using it of hybrid form, that increase with how many GPU's would be?, You have approximate date of commercialization? A greeting from Spain.

I am not on Discord... Have there been any more information about the release / ordering / shipping of the Acorns? Would be a nice little addition to rejuvenate existing rigs...

I also found this thanks to Kristy and a Youtube video from Seth Estrada, really exciting stuff! Put me down for a few, survey completed.

Would be nice to get a timeline for orders.

How do you handle orders?

Preorder and wait?

Pay and quick ship?

BTC and other cryptos?

Escrow accepted?

Paypal?

CC?

I would think  you could sell a lot of these. I hope  to get some soon.

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

I took the survey.  Some of the questions are difficult to answer with any certainty without more information.  I'm not sure how many I want until I know whether going from 1 accelerator to 2 produces diminishing returns, for example.  Hard to say which model I'm interested in without knowing anything about the difference in performance.

I think this can be used with an m.2 to pcie adapter, right?  For a motherboard that has open pcie slots obviously.  My boards don't have m.2 slots (TB250 BTC PRO and TB85).

the slot the pcie->m2 adapter plugs into needs to be run at least as x4 pcie lanes (gen 2 or better iirc).
