Concerning COPACOBANA, there are now "productized" version of their FPGA
and a new version called RIVYERA with a flexible layer of FPGAs.
On this page:
They claim to do 119k million keys per sec for AES-128 on a 128 FPGAs
This information could be used as a weak basis for "estimating" how
custom-built FPGA device performs.
