Acorn is the first-ever cryptocurrency mining accelerator card using best-in-class FPGA chips in an M.2 slot. Acorn CLE-215+ does everything the CLE-215 does while providing a 30 percent FPGA speed boost. This significantly increases hash rates for algorithms like X16r and Lyra2REv2 and enables standalone mining.
Top-of-the-line graphics cards are the best way to mine algorithms like Lyra2REv2 and X16r, but they’re still not optimized for certain tasks in the algorithm chain. They create bottlenecks in the hashing pipeline, and that means they mine at a much lower effective hash rate. There’s a lot of room for improvement.
Acorn offloads and performs the tasks where GPUs fall behind, and it performs those tasks much faster.
Acorn CLE-215+ works synchronously with high-end GPUs to ensure the best hash-rate-to-power ratio possible. In addition, it can dual mine coins and mine coins without the help of CPUs and GPUs. It’s the most efficient and effective way to mine.
You can mine Lyra2REv2 and X16r coins like Verge, Ravencoin, Monacoin and Vertcoin better by adding Acorn CLE-215+ to your mining rigs. You can mine some coins without additional hardware, and your mining rigs are safer against changes in cryptocurrency algorithms.
Acorn extends the life of existing graphics cards and keeps them relevant and useful for mining
Algorithms change frequently. Many coins and algorithms are preventing the use of specialized ASIC technology while mining. Those ASIC chips are hardwired for a single purpose, and as soon as algorithms change, they’re rendered obsolete.
As the new coins become popular, Acorn will adapt and assist mining them. The open community around Acorn and other SQRL products means developers can create their own bitstreams to use with Acorn and share with others.
Acorns will work even better over time. Today Acorns are brand new and the SQRL team of expert developers are committed to making performance optimizations every day.
SQRL offers a 90-day warranty against defects.
An M.2 2280 M-Key (PCIe) slot is required to use Acorn. Acorn should fit comfortably in most M.2 slots, but it is one millimeter wider than the official specifications. Ensure you have clearance.
Compatible mining software is required
Windows 7 or newer or Ubuntu 16.04 or newer is required.$329.99 USD
