Let's say I'm an average user of computers, no programming skills, I can run ./configure && make clean && make, 90% of the time it will work :) I want to get as many Bcrypts as possible in the shortest amount of time (naturally) but I might not be able to setup and use a Zynq. If you take "ease of use" into consideration, which platform offers the best result for the money. I might be able to do 20k c/s with a Zynq 7045, but will "I" be able to set that up? I'm budgeting $2,000 (ish). That is 2 maybe 3 good GPU's, or one Zynq board, I could buy 2-3 Phi units, a handful of others as well. 2k + ease of use (aka stupid user) = ....? I've not used a MIC or FPGA, or GPU for that matter :) Again it's not necessarily efficiency I'm after, it doesn't have to be the best setup for the $$, I might technically get more with a Zynq for instance, but if a Haswell if two i7's will do a decent job and be easier to use, I'd probably go with i7 (for example :) -rich
