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

It means that you are a lucky man! Unfortunately I have to pay electricity....
Good luck!

LTC prices are getting good the problem is the difficulty is rising so fast!!

Can you add the "Estimated" shipping column? Thanks

Good idea! I'll try to get the infos together in the next few days...although I think that dates will be "very" estimated...

Good news from ltcgear.com project!

Hi, New Scriptor 8X video here (until someone else will post one): https://vimeo.com/81143920   Overlaid noise comes from old units hashing in the other rooms. We are now shipping all payed orders and hopefully restock in one or two days.

Is this 8 x 250 or just it tops off at 250KH/s total?

250-260kH/s total For 250$ (~1kH/$)

Estimate prices for the 10 MH FPGA Litecoin miner?

hmmmm... if you cross out all OP's statements that imply a "soon / estimated / expected / reviewing / TBA / aiming for / currently testing / once we.." i think no thread would survive.
it's always the same: 75% of the linked threads will either turn out as scam OR as incapable of constructing a miner - and the rest will hopefuly sell their overpriced wares.
i'm curious about the 1-2 that will actually ship a working fpga/asic. atm it seems even too much for all parties to show legit company details on their website and a video of a working prototype - but delivery dates are set for december-february. we will see...

Well, if you happen to have a quad ztex or cainsmore board to hand, the open source version will give you around 60kHash/sec (though the hacked cgminer is rather buggy at the moment and my software skills are not really up to fixing it). Its not quite up there with beekeeper's code (or the vaporware promises of the other developers), but as a taster it may be of interest (and if someone would like to chip in with a better implementation on LX150, I'd be awfully happy to host it on my github :D )

I have a http://milkymist.org/3/mixxeo.html board arriving sometime soon, and I'm kinda full-up on busy right now, but I would like to throw a couple of LTC at someone who can port the open-source LTC miner fpga code to some open-source FPGA hardware, and do some real-world comparison of Khash / joule vs my water-cooled dual 7970 setup.

Ran across this for the thread.

that would be damn pretty - extract from datasheet https://github.com/gridseed/gc3355-doc/blob/master/GC3355_DataSheet.pdf:
51 k/h for 0.39 Watt (LTC alone)
which would lead to one megahash below 8 watt

but can this be?

That board is based on the LX45 so don't expect too much in the way of performance. Perhaps just 5kHash/sec using the onchip RAM, and maybe a little more with the external RAM, though it will depend very much on the available bandwidth. This is more Koolio/Motaboy or Jasinlee's area of expertise as I haven't done any coding with external RAM myself.

The external memory will also consume power. I am not sure if the power consumption rate is for the chip only or the whole system.
