So I’m in the process of building the first GPU based number cruncher in Farset Labs. This rig will be capable of password cracking, 3d render processing, crypto-currency mining, and lots, lots more.
It should end up looking similar to this, just far more consolidated and rack mountable.
Why are you doing this?
It’s fun, can be a community project, and makes shitloads of money.
Can I get involved?
Sure, just head over to the pledge topic and submit your digits. Work on this rig will be limited to those who put money towards the project.
Where will this be hosted?
Ideally at Farset Labs itself. I will agree with the directors beforehand the implications of this - it is likely they will get electricity cost + space rent + a tip for being cool with it.
What hardware is being used?
Currently the following:
- ASRock H81 Pro BTC Motherboard
- Intel Pentium G3220 Dual Core CPU
- Corsair AX1200 PSU
- 6x USB3 PCIe risers
- 4x AMD Radeon R9 270 GPU
- 2x AMD Radeon 7950 GPU
More information will be posted on this topic when all the parts have been acquired! If you have any other questions, let me know
