Well I'm sitting on my floor and I'm looking at my computer and see my chip hammering away at rc5.... and my video card just sitting there and i say to my self .... hmmm radeon t@l unit.... just sitting there... doing nothing since no games use it... rc5??? just a crazy thought and was wondering if it is possible to get it to work on the tnl chips on the geforce and radeon ... also does anyone have a windows ce version of rc5 ?

General consensus is that a PDA can't dissipate the heat generated by all that RC5 cracking.

They aren't meant to run at full 100% CPU usage for any length of time.

I remember a thread about that... seems the consensus of opinion was that the 200 Kkeys/sec or so wouldn't outweigh the hassle, or the risk of frying a high-end video card. But I could be wrong...

The price you would pay for a PDA, you could setup a fast Duron node and get a lot better keyrate.

I think that, like me, he already has the PDA. I have 3 of them that don't get used overnight and I considered running RC5 under WinCE. It doesn't seem practical though.
