    ๐Ÿ† Top FPGA Mining Boards

    4 min read

    FPGA mining boards come in all shapes and sizes with different chips onboard. All these variables impact the break-even and profitability of different FPGA mining boards.

    • Some chips are larger and more expensive like the VU13P and VU9P, letting you run faster bitstreams and more complex algorithms.
    • Others are much smaller, such as the Kintex 7 family, which are slower but much more affordable.
    • Some boards can handle only 80A (KU040)
    • Others can handle 200A (BCU1525, CVP-13)
    • Some boards are fine with passive cooling (BCU1525)
    • Others need water cooling (CVP-13) or immersion cooling (VCU1525)

    To make things easier, FPGA.guide did the hard math and found the top FPGA mining boards on the market today. Below are the top FPGA mining boards currently available, with a breakdown of why we chose them!

    BTU9P PRO by ๐Ÿš TUL

    We like the FPGA mining board BTU9P PRO because it's the most powerful VU9P board in the market. It fixed the overheating problem on LTC power regulator and also get a dual aux 8-pin power cables to support more power. This board can run stably at the maximum hashrate. Read our review about BTU9P PRO ๐Ÿ“ฐ here.

    BCU 1525 by ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ SQRL

    We like the BCU 1525 because it's powered by the Xilinx VU9P and contains square root magic! This version of the board contains modifications and alterations making it superior for mining cryptocurrencies. And it has a special security key encoded onto it. The key allows access to additional Minerator bitstreams.

    CVP-13 by ๐Ÿ…ฑ๏ธ Bittware

    We like the BittWare CVP-13 because it is powered by the Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU13P 2E FPGA. Available passive air-cooled, or liquid-cooled for maximum performance, the CVP-13 is optimized for mining cryptocurrencies. The CVP-13 will come with an encryption key enabling the Allmine Shell but also allowing for non-encrypted FPGA loads.

    Also with 300A power supply, VU13P with 50% more logic and more on-package UltraRAM than VCU/BCU1525. And has 800Gb/s board-to-board support (400Gb/s daisy-chain). The key allows access to additional private bitstreams. Also with 300A power supply, VU13P with 50% more logic and more on-package UltraRAM than VCU/BCU1525. And has 800Gb/s board-to-board support (400Gb/s daisy-chain). Check the ๐Ÿ‘‰live demo of the board at the SC18 show running test load and liquid cooling.

    F1/F1+ Blackminer by โ—ผ๏ธ HashAltcoin

    We like F1/F1+ Blackminer because the profitability is currently the best and it's easy to use! It's powered by 12 Xilinx K7 325T chips. Already includes the Delta fan to cool off the chips. And the best part is, HashAltcoin team is consistently releasing bitstream, so far they have the most bitstream available for their boards ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.
