I like small and quiet clusters like this Roll Eyes

Icarus fpga cluster 2 Ghs @ 100W



Not to hijack the thread, but could someone give me the "explain it to me like im 5" explanation of what im looking at. I understand mining bitcoins with computers and such but these cards confuse me. How are they achieving that type of hash rate at such a low power draw?

Do some research on Field Gate Programmable Array's
