NVIDIA "Pascal" Based Mining GPU Lineup Detailed

https://www.techpowerup.com/234575/nvidia-pascal-based-mining-gpu-lineup-detailed


My hope is that this will make available cards that are a bit cheaper and can crunch and will fulfill the needs of miners so gaming cards prices will drop to reasonable levels and availability will improve.

Networks and security / Re: Raspberry Pi VPN Router w/ PIA

I've been wanting to do something along this line. I feel the RPi is too underpowered for my needs. I put a quad core opteron 2.2gz on the kill-a-watt but even with Kool & Quite on and nothing running it draws 68 watts. Wanted to put pfSense on it. After much reading I am leaning towards an Odroid. 2 gigs ram, quad core, gigabit ethernet and most important crypto extensions. Tests show best results under Ubuntu.

I do not think I can get something that would run pfSense for under $80 and have the power draw close to the Odroid. Plus with the Odroid I should be able to run a few cores on WCG as OpenVPN uses one core. I think.

GIGABYTE Intros MZ30-AR0 Motherboard for AMD EPYC
https://www.techpowerup.com/234567/gigabyte-intros-mz30-ar0-motherboard-for-amd-epyc

"GIGABYTE introduced the MZ30-AR0 motherboard for single-socket AMD EPYC processor-powered servers and workstations. The motherboard is built in the E-ATX form-factor, and features a single SP3r2 socket, for AMD EPYC 7000-series processors. Given that EPYC is a full-fledged SoC, the board has no chipset. An ASpeed AST2500 remote-management chip puts out basic display and IPMI features. The board draws power from two 8-pin EPS connectors, besides the 24-pin ATX. The CPU socket is flanked by 16 DDR4 DIMM slots, which support up to 512 GB of octa-channel DDR4 memory.

Expansion slots include four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 with full-time x16 wiring, one x16 with x8 wiring, and two x8 slots. Storage connectivity includes four slimSAS 12 Gb/s ports, which put out sixteen SATA 6 Gb/s ports, and a 32 Gb/s M.2 slot. Networking is care of two 10 GbE ports driven by a Broadcom BCM57810S processor, and a single GbE port. There's no onboard audio or even USB 3.1 ports."

I really know nothing about what you linked. I did go to the links but I have no experience with it. I find it interesting though and hope someone with experience does chime in.

Good luck!  ><{
