The computer industry is always changing. This is where I spout my public opinion on Computer Industry happenings. Maybe somebody will find something useful in what I have to say. It's not that funny. Really you can stop laughing now.
I recently accepted an order for an cryprographic on line currency mining computer. I wasn't prepaired for the amount of hardware inflation in that market.
While I remain skeptical about the entire online currency trading markent I will non the less do my best for any customer who wants a custom built solution for those who want to take a shot at it.
Bitcoins are well described by wikki here.
Bitcoin Mining is well described here.
The history of bitcoin mining hardware goes like this.
CPU-Central Processing Unit Mining - This is where it started K-Hash speed (1000 Hash)
Math Co-Processor Mining - quickly switched to M-Hash speed (1K x 1K) = M-Hash
GPU-Graphic Processor Unit Mining - 50 to 200 M-Hash speed but big power required.
FPGA-Field Programmable Gate Array - 300 MH to multiple GH but big power required
ASIC-Application Specific Integrated Circuit - Same as FPGA Speed but low power requirements
Hybrid FPGA/FPAA (Field Programmable Analog Array) or SOAC (System On A Chip) features low cost of purchase and high power requirements but at Terra-hash speeds from 1 to 4 Terra Hash
ASSOAC-Application Specific System On A Chip (features low cost, low power requirements and high speeds exceeding 4 THash
QFPGA-Quantum Field Programmable Gate Array - Promises PHash speed, but complex support ciruitry and complex program reqirements high power reqirements
ASQIC-Application Specific Quantum Integrated Circut - Promises PHash Speed, complex support circutry, but simple programming requirements and low power requirements.
Hybrid QFPGA/FPAA or QSOAC (Quantum System On A Chip)
ASQSOAC-Application Specific Quantum System On A Chip.
