Thank you LiQio for the summary and Kramble for the clarification!

Overall I would say that things are moving forward... (which is good!). I have just received some "light" boards from Beekeeper, and I will be "playing" with them over the w/e!
Have a good day.

I have posted my scriptor8X "experience" on beekeper thread.

Chirale, good job with the list and keeping it un-biased.
I would recommend that you order the list and put "Stopped" project at the bottom.

This thread is now stickied.

Open invitation to any group developing dedicated mining devices:

I am willing to independently review and audit a working device.
If you ship me a device, my review will reveal "real world" results. I'll post photos. I'll take the cover off and post photos of the insides (unless a requested NDA forbids that). I'll measure heat, power usage, etc. And yes, I'll actually mine with it. All of this will be done without the developer looking over my shoulder. I'll provide a neutral perspective in my review with out "padding" any results.

If you want to send a prototype unit, I will be glad to take a look and review it as well. I'll follow any NDAs (Non Disclosure Agreement) on a prototype review. For example, if your NDA forbids photos, I'll still review the hash rate and power consumption, etc.

At the end of my review, upon request, the unit will be shipped back. But it would be great if it could be donated to the Litecoin Association.

This can be a win-win. The developer wins by receiving an unbiased review and proof that your product does what it says it does. The Litecoin Community wins with additional ways to mine. Litecoin Association wins if the developer chooses to donate the device.

Developers: To get started, send me a PM.

Bad news from payonix project...
https://payonix.com/index.php?route=pavblog/blog&id=44

As expected: perfect scamming
Collect as many Bitcoins as pre-payment as possible - hold, postpone, lie, put off... in the end when bitcoin value has multiplied refund in dollars... nice arbitrage

To all scrypt FPGA developers (jasinlee, kramble, beekeeper, koolio):

Correct me if I'm wrong but I see you have a lot of work hacking cgminer to work with your prototypes.

Have any of you guys contacted ckolivas and asked him to add support for scrypt FPGAs in cgminer? Sure, FPGA for Bitcoin is dead and it makes sense to throw it out. But it makes huge sense to add it for scrypt.

That way you could focus on optimizing FPGAs and not hacking cgminer. Also if some changes happen to the mining protocol we would just get the new release and everything should work fine.

Any thoughts?

is there any proof of a running FPGA nowadays that does 5mh's or more, because i see the difficulty getting alot higher to fast.

Darkpsy,
No real evidence.Cryptoindustries only company claiming to release units able to hash 5 and 10mH/s, but no evidence so far. Don't forget though that you can pile up several "slower" FPGA (e.g. Beekeeper, claiming to release units hashing ~250-300 kH/s each) and reach the hashing power you want... Just an idea.

the problem of that is its price and normally a gpu is better for me since i pay no electricity.

Price is a concern of mine as well but on the flip side the datacenter were I would be able to leverage free electricity isnt going to be too happy about open air computer equipment with wires running all over. I was thinking I could get the FPGA's inside standard rack mount cases easier than I can GPUs.
