A new card design will take ages to be implemented, and that is not counting driver development. So why reinvent the wheel?
Ok, looks interesting, but if it was easy I'm guessing someone would be selling these by now.
Kipper2k is around here somewhere. :-) Whats your view on this? What are the pros and cons?
Also, to physically fit a board that can be used with the various accelerator designs might be tricky. And if it would only work with a very specific hardware combo it would just be another BVision..
