Exciting week for the X6500 project

It’s been an eventful week for the X6500, FPGAminer has successfully integrated the amazingly fast Ztex hashers to fit our implementation.

I’ve managed to synthesize bitstreams at up to 190Mhash. The repository is here.

You’ve gotta have a suitably licensed version of ISE to get LX150 support. For those who don’t we’ll release pre-compiled bitstreams soon.

Do watch out for cooling though, at these speeds, any failure in the cooling system will very likely fry your FPGA.

Fizzisist has also succesfully implemented long polling into the mining software, as well as worked out a result submission bug that was causing an unusually large number of rejects, with the help of m0mchil.
