Acorn CLE 215

Maximize hash rate to power ratio

Acorn is the first-ever cryptocurrency mining accelerator card. By using best-in-class Xilinx FPGA chips in an M.2 slot, Acorn CLE-215 does everything the CLE-101 does while providing a boost to core-intensive mining using more than double the FPGA logic. Acorn CLE-215 makes mining algorithms like X16r and Lyra2REv2 on GPUs more efficient.

Efficiently mine core-intensive coins

The best hardware is required to effectively mine core-intensive algorithms like Lyra2REv2 and X16r. Top-of-the-line graphics cards work well, but they’re still not optimized for certain tasks in the algorithm chain. They create bottlenecks in the hashing pipeline, and that means they mine at a much lower effective hash rate. There’s a lot of room for improvement.

Acorn offloads and performs the tasks GPUs don’t excel at – and performs those tasks much faster.

Acorn CLE-215 works with high-end GPUs to efficiently minimize bottlenecks, and it can dual mine coins to maximize your profitability.

What does it all mean?

You can mine Lyra2REv2 and X16r coins like Verge, Ravencoin, Monacoin and Vertcoin better by adding Acorn CLE-215 to your mining rigs.

Should I use CLE-215?

Use CLE-215 if you...

  • mine Lyra2REv2 or X16r
  • use high-end, top-of-the-line graphics cards like 1080ti, VEGA 56 or VEGA 64
  • want to dual mine
  • want to optimize your power-to-hash-rate ratio

Don't use CLE-215 if you...

  • only mine Ethash or CryptoNight V1
  • want to use Acorn as standalone mining hardware
  • want the highest performance on the most algorithms

Future-Focused Flexibility

Acorn extends the life of existing graphics cards and keeps them relevant and useful for mining

Algorithms change frequently. Many coins and algorithms are preventing the use of specialized ASIC technology while mining. Those ASIC chips are hardwired for a single purpose, and as soon as algorithms change, they’re rendered obsolete.

As the new coins become popular, Acorn will adapt and assist mining them. The open community around Acorn and other SQRL products means developers can create their own bitstreams to use with Acorn and share with others.

Acorns will work even better over time. Today Acorns are brand new and the SQRL team of expert developers are committed to making performance optimizations every day.



Warranty Information and Specifications

SQRL offers a 90-day warranty against defects.

An M.2 2280 M-Key (PCIe) slot is required to use Acorn. Acorn should fit comfortably in most M.2 slots, but it is one millimeter wider than the official specifications. Ensure you have clearance.

Compatible mining software is required

Windows 7 or newer or Ubuntu 16.04 or newer is required.
