This thread has been superseded by the product comparison table on BitcoinFPGA
----

Right now there are three:

FPGA development board "Icarus" for mining
X6500 Custom FPGA Miner
ZTEX USB-FPGA Module 1.15x: 190 MH/s FPGA Board now on stock

I'll be keeping this thread up-to-date as new products launch. By "launch" I mean
fully built/tested/working, in stock, and available for sale to the general public with
immediate shipment. Preferably with 1 or more positive reviews here on the forum.

The list is sorted from highest to lowest MH/$, in qty 1. That seemed like the
most useful ordering method for most people.

History:
2011-12-20: Added Icarus
2011-12-12: Added X6500
2011-11-13: Added ztex

Good idea. Your link appears to be broken though.

Hopefully that list grows with time.  As for people paying for unseen, untested, unverified products from an unknown company well ...

I recall a saying about a fool and his coins.

Nice idea. How about including the date added, so we can see the pace of development?

ZTEX is a great guy to deal with. Can't wait to test his product.

ZTEX (The Man) is a great guy to deal with. Can't wait to test his product.
 Just want to point out, he does not like to have his name included here on the forums even thogh it's in his contact info on the website. ;p

edit; cheers, m8

What about transforming this into a list of Built/Tested/Shipping ASICs/FPGAs + possible upcoming ASICs/FPGAs? I am just suggesting it because if I want to buy a board, I might want to know about the possibility of getting a much better deal two weeks from now. Essentially, it would be a more complete buy guide with proper warnings for untested/unconfirmed new material.

I got my X6500 from fpgamining.com a few days ago and finally got around to getting it running.
Its nice and quiet, not too hot, over 250 MH/s under 32 bit linux.

Awesome! Thanks for posting DannyM!

Can we get it added to your list, rph? Smiley

  Complete list of Built/Tested/Shipping ASIC/FPGA Miner Products    Grin  'Shipping' as meaning you have sent them. It is a qualifier to show you had something to ship. mail speed is not a factor in that imho.

  And you had one local pick up and he is up and running.  I'm fairly confident your Icarus is qualifying for this list, m8. Though I admire your humility.

  Cheers,
    Derek

Speaking of that, does anyone else think it's unfair that ztex's MH/$ in that table is based on the 25 unit price?

Yes.

Icarus is also not on that list.

Yes it is unnecessary and misleading.  Price should be based on 1 unit and then optionally indicate "lower prices available in volume" or have another entry like "25 card cluster" w/ total cost and MH per $ stats.

Also that entire section could use a rework.  I would separate out dedicated miners from all the experimental boards and put number of FPGA per board in a separate column.  Since it is a wiki if nobody else changes it I will make some changes tonight.

so my X6500 is at the post-office and i have to pay 88,19€ taxes (zoll)
so finally i am a 412,36€ for pre-order,x6500-board,shipping, tax(zoll)

i always looked at the ztex-board when it came out, but i had the pre-order for the X6500 already paid
ztex-board(1.15x) would cost me 379.61€ including taxes without porto

so theres not much difference in the price if you live in Austria (or the EU) if you by only one board, as the wiki says X6500 makes 266Mhs/sec and 1.15x makes 200Mhs/sec, but i think both will make some performance updates by software, and the X6500 has two spartan6 (150), so i think the X6500 has more space for performance-tuning?

this info is for people in the EU, to make it easier to compare

so my brain says me i should buy an other X6500, but my heart says i should buy a ztex 1.15x to compare the two,
but my bank says: "not enough money" Wink
