• For the young folks, an explanation of the term “8-bit” gaming.
  • There is a possibly dead cryptocurrency project with the ticker symbol 8BIT.
  • For more pixelated cryptocurrencies.
  • An Intel CPU has a processing power of roughly 100 billion FLOPs. By comparison, the NES processor, has roughly 7 million FLOPS. While not a direct comparison, the NES, if even capable of mining, would be lucky to hit even 1 H/s, most likely less, on any algorithm. That’s still faster than mining by hand, which we mentioned before. Manually mining would be lucky to hit 1 H/day.
