interested if this would be able to mine zettelkasten faster bcuz they use double keccak for the algo

~ 500MH by the looks of the algo, 7-8GH on 1525

I have read this thread, but am still a bit confused. Is an Acorn accelerator more for miners that have power limitations: so instead of putting a used RX570 on a 1xPCIe riser and adding 30MH/s for about 120w... they would add an Acorn instead (with at least 4xPCIe to an existing card) and get that same 30MH/s boost but at only +-15W - for the same investment ($200)?

Maybe this would allow a 6-card rig to hash like an 8-card rig... but saving the extra 250W+ that 8-card setup would have added to your power bill?

If so, cool! Smiley

Survey complete.

I want one high end version assuming they have reasonable ROI after further testing.

I am very interested, took the survey. Being a noob I have lots of questions. I have a couple of small rigs. I run SMOS, can I still use it or will I need to change OS. I also use Enemy 1.11, what's that going to do.
Do you have some diagrams as to how the hardware all connects ? If I can use it, I want to give it a go.

all u need to do is just sit and wait.
i think once devs have a working product that is ready for release and selling they will find a way to adopt the usability it to anyone who wants it.

Could M.2 CPU mining accelerators also be engineered?

Acorn CAN do this.

must we do intel cpus?

I am looking for a new thread ripper with your m2 boosters and a 1080ti. or 2

I would get a board with 2x m2 slots.

I would then boost the cpu with one m2 from you
I would then boost the 2 1080tis with the other m2 from you.

Acorn doesn’t particularly care which CPU you use, although of course both worth a bit differently.

I'm looking at something similar to Phil right now. The only thing I need to see is some numbers etc... so I can estimate a rough ROI.  In other words, I'm waiting for the same thing as everyone else in this thread. Smiley

Is there a chart showing rough estimations of performance increase on some popular algos?

+1 on that.. I too am new, and have a few miners running SMOS..

I would be very much also interested in some info about it

I'm planning to put that up if I can obtain and benchmark samples on reference platform(s):

I will also tabulate and post if stats are available from credible sources.

Latest on the discord channel is late this month or early July. GPUHoarder's minions are benchmarking a bunch of mobos and GPUs, and I would imagine probably different algos, too. GPUHoarder has been quite adamant about not releasing data until it is all collected.

So I'm guessing we need to encourage a manufacturer to design and produce a riserless, full PCIx16 slot motherboard like the Octominer (x8) or fictional "Dodecaminer" (x12), that has two or more M.2 slots, 4 DDR4 RAM slots and an LGA1151?!

It sounds like that would be the ideal hardware for the Acorn. Or am I out of my mind here?!

Those boards are wired at x1 pcie 2.0 through the chipset. Only server CPUs (EPYC/Xeon), Threadripper and the expensive X99/X299 CPUs have enough lanes to achieve multiple slots on pcie 3.0 x8 or x16.
