This gen is all about making your own after all we are all liberatarion.

Here you go specs comparing different types of ICs pricing is steep for FPGA and ASIC though they will most likely not only run your game but also your life .

Here you go so if you want to benefit the community at large please go ahead:

Product Hash rate [Mhash/s] Price[$]
Butterflylabs Mini Rig (FPGA) 25,200 15K$
7990 1200 777$
BitForce Mini Rig 'SC' 1,500,000 30K $( though it is ASIC assuming similiar opt . your ASIC should produce same results probably better).

Though it is a task also drivers need to be handled properly . Maybe if we can get an open source project moving that devs can sign on to support that will be great .

yes they are which is why i mentioned that these are ASIC but if you build your own ASICs for gaming you can supposedly reach similar results or better .

Considering bit coin mining was done lets say by the tech community itself .
