I just added this bad girl to my HiveOS farm!
It’s equipped with the latest tech… an ELEVEN year old Asus EEEPC netbook with a dual core Atom N450 CPU and 1gig of RAM, an RX 480 8GB reference card, a mini-PCIe riser and a Dell 250W PSU (probably like 60% efficiency rating!)
Here she is running with the lid closed, to stay incognito:
And here’s she is, opened up in her glory:
The lowest power consumption I could achieve is 175 watts total system power at 28.3MH/s … the laptop uses about 5 watts of that, so the PSU is pretty terrible, but it’s really more of a proof of concept at this point.
I think I’m going to add a PCIe multiplier card next and run 4 GPUs on it with a better PSU.
Tell me what you think I should do next.
