Hi Miners! We got our hands on TUL's latest backplate. Excited to present this quick review 😁
What we have here is TUL's backplate prototype. This backplate is designed to dissipate more heat from the components on the back side of the FPGA board, especially the LTC3384. This explains why the design is similar to a heatsink. It is also compatible with VCU-1525, BCU-1525 and BTU9P.
Last week, we installed TUL's new backplate on our BTU9P board and did a little test with DC's ZenProtocol and Whitefire's 0xToken.
Note: We ran this test in room temperature 25C and with an additional fan (110CFM).
Here's our test result:
👾 Digital Cruncher's ZenProtocol
|Number of Cores||Vcc||Hashrate||LTC Temperature|
Our BTU9P can run DC's ZenProtocol full speed for more than 2 days!
🔥 Whitefire's 0xToken
|Frequency||Vcc||Hashrate||Error rate||LTC Temperature|
|Vcc||Hashrate||Error rate||LTC Temperature|
Our BTU9P can run Whitefire's 0xToken 17GH/s bitstream with this new backplate!
