PS4 / XBox One
« on: December 21, 2013, 07:43:52 PM »

I believe both of these new consoles support AES-NI - they might make excellent mining machines one day.

>Another plus for AES-GCM is that if the architecture supports the AES-NI instruction set, encryption will be blazing fast. High-end PC CPUs, the Xbox One, PS4, and the iPhone 5S all support AES-NI,

I'm a Apple Developer and have Access to a iPhone 5s. I'll Test this :)

Well be careful not to do any damage to your device - pretty sure they're not designed for 100% cpu usage over a long period of time.

I just got Xbox One. Can't wait to mine MemoryCoin on it:) Also Microsoft says each xbox comes with something like 5x cpu power in the cloud. So theoretically we can mine both at home and in the cloud.

I don't think it is possible yet - usually need to wait for a while before you can run linux on new consoles.  ;D

Hate to spoil the party, but both consoles have 8-core AMD running at 1.6GHz onboard, nothing special about it (save for SoC package and the price).

So maybe we'd see 2 hpm. Console mining is very attractive not so much for raw power, but for wide distribution because the hardware is so standard. A single disc should work for every console of its type and is particularly easy for users to run. I'm guessing the consoles run at low energy levels too - so could be a great source of efficient mining for the network.
